PostSubject: Team Penske   Tue Jan 14, 2014 9:37 am

Attn all serious drivers:  AAR was recently approached by Team Penske Racing to field drivers for the FSCS season 12.  If you are serious, and want to be on a great team, flying the Penske livery,  let me know. Mr. Roger Penske demands hiring only the best available drivers. 


To satisfy our contractual agreement with Team Penske, I will be conducting try outsYou will get 5laps to show your stuff in the legal car of your choice in the class you prefer.  We will only field 3 drivers per class, and they will function as a team in that class. If we can’t field 3 drivers in a class we will not sponsor them as a Team Penske entrant.


Originally starting out in Trans-Am racing, F1, and CanAm racing in the 1960’s winning multiple championships in both Chevy and MOPAR cars, and then USAC, they are no strangers to road racing.


But Roger Penske is most famous as the Godfather of Indy Car racing.  As of May 1, 2012, Penske Racing has won the Indianapolis 500 15 times, won the Indianapolis 500 pole position 16 times, as well as 163 open wheel IndyCar wins in USAC, CART and IRL, 26 of which are in 500-Mile Races and 12 open wheel championships. Penske Racing has 1327 starts in IndyCar races, 207 pole positions, 66 wins from pole, 42 double wins of which 8 are 1-2-3 finishes from the Pocono race on June 26, 1977 to the race in São Paulo on April 29, 2012.


Team Penske won its first NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship in 2012 with Brad Keselowski in the #2 Dodge.
Team Penske won the ALMS P2 Championship in 2007.


And as Mr. Penske likes to do, he’s now branching off into the uncharted waters of the newest form of American Sports Car Racing, the FSCS Tudor United Sports Car Championship (USCC)


Try outs are for:
GTLM & P1/DP Saturday 6 pm PST 50 Lap Races (5 open slots)
ST Sunday 11 am 25 Lap Races (2 open slots)
GS, Sunday  1 pm  35 Lap Races (2 open slots)
GT Sunday 4PM 50 Lap Races (2 open slots)
(LeMans 12 hours? 3 man teams) Nurburgring Nordschleife Finale 20 Laps

Contact me to take your test and see if you have what it takes to be a Championship driver for Team Penske.
Team Manager
AAR GTDon

PS if we can field a team in each class, and then win a championship in any of the classes there will be a cash payout to that team of not less than $60.00! So tell the people you race with, and let’s go racing!

Okay things are starting to take shape. We've hired 6 drivers but still have 5 open seats.  The way this will work once we are full is through testing each driver at Sunset P Reverse.  Those with the fastest laps will keep their ride, those who are slower can try again until a week before opening day.  

I promised Mr. Penske we would have the fastest available drivers for each class, and that is exactly what I intend to deliver to him.

P/DP we need 2 drivers
GTLM we need 2 drivers
GT we need 1 drivers
GS we need 0 drivers
ST we need 0 drivers

Mr. Hendricks owner of Hendrick's Motorsport has announced entry into the FSCS/USCC series, as a result of seeing Team Penske enter. They have made no bones about it, and their team manager has been calling us out at every media opportunity.  

These are two very different camps, but with nearly equal resumes. Mr. Penske is not a fan of social drama and prefers to do his talking on the race track.  We are to respect his wishes to the fullest, and not respond or retaliate to anything Hendrick's Motorsports does.  Our goal is to win championships cleanly, fairly, and not to create turmoil.

Update:  Walk-ons are now welcome to try-out for Team Penske at this time.  We have a full compliment of drivers but everyone still has to earn their ride.

This is a private test session of 5 laps at Sunset P. Reverse in whatever base P.I. car you prefer, from whatever class you hope to compete in. You may repeatedly take the test each and every day until Jan 31st to post your best time. Lap times will not be revealed to the public, but I will post a mini-leader board so people can see who has earned a position on Team Penske.

*Dan Gurney and Roger Penske will likely be on hand observing from the tower.  Good luck gentlemen, and may the fastest men win.

Update: Team Penske has a nearly full compliment of drivers in their stables, with only 1 or 2 vacant seats to fill at this time. If you want to try out or were thinking of having fun being in a team this season, contact me.

So far not all has went well in testing with several elite drivers storming off the track displeased with the car selections and alleged poor management, shouting angry expletives at the tower and waving their middle finger as they left the track facilities.  Roger Penske and Dan Gurney were not amused.

Those that remain, are solid talents, and the kind of drivers willing to be part of a team having fun, sharing knowledge, and focusing on doing their utmost to win.  These are super clean drivers with many championships to their credit.

Allow me to introduce the 8 drivers who have secured a ride and won the honor to represent Team Penske.  With a combined average FLR rating of 2519.529 these are the drivers who will continue the winning heritage of the Penske name...

nice to see you got inviseco and Bulin Wall.
I remember qualifying/practicing for a Nordschliefe race on vm and I was pulling great lap times in a not too popular car.
Then Bulin showed up and was running times 2 seconds faster than me and he said he could find more Razz look forward to seeing these guys race Smile

As it is in the real world of racing, many musical chairs come into play when hiring and firing drivers.  Hopefully no ill will is produced because of this. Here is our most recent list of clean racers.

And here's our real Bully Dog and team mascot, "Piggy" aka "Piggles" "Mr. Piggles" aka "The Pig" or just plain "Pig."  He's a 2 year old American Bulldog 80lbs, and has a strong dislike of strangers over the age of 12.

Some things never change.  Just as it was back in June when Joe Gibbs Racing and Hendrick Motorsports were suspected of stealing talent from Team Penske as noted by Brad Keselowski, so it seems some of this continues on here at the FSCS.

The posture here at Team Penske is not to ponder the alleged meddling deeds of other team owners, but to stay focused on winning races.  We would hope that Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing are not doing this, but we also know where there is smoke there is usually fire, and with the limited talent pool out there, we are not surprised.

With a reputation of always trying to buy his way to victory and stacking the deck in his favor Hendrick will never be accused of competing or being a gambler.

Looks like Team Penske has struck a nerve out there. Now that the opposition is all rallied up about Dr. Evil's "deep pockets" and "bribes" it may be just about time to get serious about car selections.  What? That's right. As I understand it if you switch to a different team in a different class you can change cars.  Hmm, time to look into that. Muhahahaha! jk, I think.  

But I suppose it is possible with enough guys, to swap out every current car for something different. And "evil genius" that I am, I do have enough guys. Have to wait and see what everyone else in their puny little teams commit to first. Muhahahahaha! Muhahahahaha! Muhahahahaha!
