Paretta Autosport team owner Beth Paretta says that having Roger Penske’s knowledge and support at hand has been invaluable in recent months following the announcement on Tuesday that she will enter an all female team in the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 30.
The team announced that they will run NTT IndyCar Series veteran Simona De Silvestro in a Team Penske backed Dallara and speaking to Paddock Eye Paretta said:
Well, they have won 18 times. It goes beyond just the technical support. I mean, even just in the past few months just sort of, in fairness, Mr. Penske has always been a bit of a mentor and I think a lot of people will say that, those who know him. And he’s been very generous with just ideas and thoughts, and that is sort of that intangible stuff that I am extremely grateful for.
But the technical partnership, to just be able to not come in completely cold and have that, sort of that shared understanding of, and of course, it’s great for Indy, but as you expand, to understand how to approach races at other tracks too. It’s invaluable.
