Roger Penske the racing driver has long since disappeared into the mists of time, to be replaced by the imposing figure who has built a business empire and progressively developed a small racing team, with Mark Donohue as driver, into the premier power in US single-seater racing, producing their own chassis for the Indy Car series.

However, Penske was a very good driver indeed. Racing a Porsche RSK, he won the SCCA 'F' category championship in 1960 before acquiring a Cooper-Monaco, which he modified and was later to rename the Zerex Special. Between 1961 and 1963 he gained many successes with this car and performed equally well in others, such as John Mecom's Ferrari GTO.

His drives in the US GPs of 1961 and 1962 offered him little but the chance to rub shoulders with the stars of the day, though he did bring his cars home to the finish. In 1964 he raced in future rival Jim Hall's Chaparral team, winning races at Monterey and Nassau and taking second place in the Riverside GP. At the end of the season Penske retired from driving to start his automobile business and the rest, as they say, is history.
