INDIANAPOLIS — Monday's news that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IndyCar are now in the hands of Penske Entertainment sent shockwaves across the globe.

Roger Penske will be only the fourth owner for the famed oval at 16th Street and Georgetown Road.

Penske says he plans to spend time in Indianapolis hearing from his employees at the Speedway.

The man nicknamed 'The Captain' will set a new course for the track.

RTV6 had a chance to ask him if he plans to invite President Donald Trump to IMS after his recent visit to The White House, and whether he will be the one making the traditional 'Start Your Engines' call at the Indy 500.

Penske says he is open to taking risks and suggested looking at ways to adding more activities at the track throughout the years.
