INDIANAPOLIS -- Team Penske, preparing for a possible entry
in the Indianapolis 500, tested at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
this week for the second time in less than a month.
Car owner Roger Penske has fielded cars for a record 10 Indy 500
winners but has not entered since 1995, the year before speedway
president Tony George launched the Indy Racing League. Two teams
from the rival CART series, including winner Juan Montoya's Ganassi
Racing, entered this year.
"We want to make sure everything fits," Penske Racing
president Tim Cindric said Thursday. "The (weather) conditions
aren't great, but we're keeping the tire warmers on the car and
we'll see what we can learn."
Penske driver Helio Castroneves tested Wednesday and Thursday.
Last month, teammate Gil de Ferran, this season's CART champion,
also tested at the track.
