Default 30 years on the job as of today!

30 years ago today (9/11/78), I started work at IROC/Penske Racing. It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by, and so many great things have happened around me. It sure is easier to go to work when you're surrounded by such dedicated people. Certain events seem like yesterday, while others seem like I read them in a history book. I'm just glad that I could make a career out of something so rewarding.

It's just a shame that the date has become so easy to remember, for all the wrong reasons....

You are such a Slacker & Underachiever! hahahahaha

Congrats Chuck! Through reading and your stories I have been fortunate enough to hear some great stories about Penske Racing. I am sure one of the best memories in your career was when you were head of the Indy team and you won the Indy 500. That had to be pretty awesome.

Also - thanks for being "Moses" for the NJPPC Poker Run 10 Commandments

1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1991, 1993, or 1994? They were ALL good parties.
