PTC congratulated its customer and performance partner, Penske Racing, whose cars are designed and developed with the help of PTC’s design software, on its banner racing weekend. The Team Penske IZOD IndyCar Series team swept the podium on August 28 as its three drivers claimed 1st, 2nd and 3rd place at the Indy Grand Prix in Sonoma, California and 1st place at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Irwin Tools Night Race in Bristol, Tennessee on August 27. Often referred to as the “New York Yankees of motorsports,” these recent victories add to Penske Racing’s impressive record of over 330 race wins and 23 national championships.
The Penske Racing Team uses PTC’s design and development software in all aspects of race car design, engineering, testing, and manufacturing, which enables Penske Racing and the Penske Technology Group to develop everything from concept to manufacturing within one solution. In addition, PTC design technology allows the team to design, prototype, and test in a virtual world which enables them to quickly produce parts in the constantly changing competitive racing environment.
