In 1969, the business speaker founded Penske Corporation to grow to more than 300 car dealerships. Roger Penske is the owner of Penske Racing and has posted more than 310 wins which included 15 Indy 500 victories. Roger Penske is available for speaking engagements, hosting, and endorsements.

By 1960, he was a well-known race car driver (SCAA Driver of the Year). He competed in two Formula One Grands Prix, and won a NASCAR Pacific Coast Late Model race at Riverside in 1963. He never ran the Indianapolis 500: he was offered a rookie test at Indianapolis, but turned it down for business reasons; rookie Mario Andretti stepped in for Penske to take that test.
