The Captain's House - ISM Raceway Prix View 2018 Offers Chance To Tour The Penske Racing Museum

ISM Raceway's Prix View, Verizon IndyCar Series first full field teams oval track test in 2018 of the new Universal Aero Kit body work that covers the DW-12 Dallara racing chassis, offers up an opportunity to visit the "Captain's House Of Racing & Championship Performance" - the Penske Racing Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The drive from Goodyear to Scottsdale is only about forty minutes and is well worth the "freeway close" commute to catch one of the most unique motor culture displays of racing success that exists almost anywhere one can look in these United States.

The Penske Racing Museum showcases an amazing collection of cars trophies and racing memorabilia chronicling the career of one of the most successful dynasties in all of sports.

The Penske Racing Museum has over 50 years of racing experience and over 400 major race wins highlighted by a record-setting number of Indianapolis 500 mile race victories.

In the two-story structure are cars that detail the diversity of Penske Racing, including the replica of the 1963 Pontiac Catalina which Roger Penske drove to victory in the 1963 Riverside 250. Additionally, a number of Indianapolis 500 race winners are on display including the 2009 Dallara which Helio Castroneves drove to win in 2009 Indy 500.

Upstairs at the Penske Racing Museum, the Turn 4 Cafe is located next to displays of all Team Penske trophies over the years and models covering some of the special cars and engines that won most of the major races. There is also a boutique where one can buy memorabilia from the Penske Racing Museum.
