Team Penske NTT INDYCAR SERIES crew member Caitlyn Brown will make history for the outfit at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding this weekend as she becomes the first female engineer to work over the wall for Team Penske as she will work over the wall on Josef Newgarden’s No.2 Hitachi Chevrolet.
Brown worked with Paretta Autosport and credited her experience working with the team that has helped her move up to Team Penske in the role that she is in today.
My experience with Paretta Autosport allowed me to get an introduction to INDYCAR and open my eyes to the opportunities I had inside Team Penske to do other things. I’m thankful that under the Penske umbrella, everyone worked together to let me have that opportunity.”
Newgarden has had a number of changes on his side of Penske operation but this is something that does not phase him heading into the opening weekend of the season.
