A Smaller Team But The Same Goal

Team Penske head into the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season which gets underway in three weeks time with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg following a big change for the outfit over the off-season.

Penske has downsized this season, going from having four to three full-time entries following the departure of Simon Pagenaud who has moved to Meyer Shank Racing alongside Helio Castroneves.

The team has also had a change in the engineering department following the departure of Josef Newgarden’s race engineer, Gavin Ward who joined Arrow McLaren SP over the winter.

Team Penske will have Josef Newgarden in the No.2 Hitachi Chevrolet while Scott McLaughlin returns for his second season with the team in the No.3 PPG Chevrolet while Will Power continues in the No.12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet.

Team Penske has not won the championship in IndyCar since 2019 with Josef Newgarden while Simon Pagenaud won the Indianapolis 500 that year.
