The Team Penske experience follows a one-on-one luncheon and GM Global Tech Center tour with GM President Mark Reuss that was on the block earlier this year as the first two major auction fundraising initiatives the MSHFA has introduced in 2024 with the support of the top organizations and corporations in the motorsports and automotive industries.

“We are extremely grateful to Roger and everyone at Team Penske for making this amazing experience at Team Penske available to one lucky group that will truly have an experience of their lifetimes,” said MSHFA President George Levy. “We are also deeply appreciative of the generous support of Bring a Trailer as well as Mark Reuss and everyone at GM who didn’t hesitate to support our successful initial auction this past spring. It is an honor and even humbling to know that industry leaders such as Roger Penske and Team Penske, and Mark Reuss and GM, share in our passion and mission of preserving the great legacy of American motorsports for generations to come.”

Competing in a variety of disciplines over the last few decades, cars owned and prepared by Team Penske have produced through last month more than 630 major race wins and over 690 pole positions and 44 championships. In addition to the 20 Indy 500 victories, the team has won three Daytona 500 Championships, a Formula 1 win, overall victories in the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring and a win in Australia’s legendary Bathurst 1000 race.

The MSHFA Museum greets more than 150,000 visitors each year. As a nonprofit foundation, the MSHFA is largely dependent on donations – which are typically tax-free – from individuals and organizations for its annual operating budget.
