Major organizational changes at Team Penske for IMSA, IndyCar

Team Penske is changing up its leadership pyramid in both its IndyCar and IMSA programs.

Effective immediately, veteran race engineer Ron Ruzewski, who most recently served as technical director, has been promoted to managing director and will report directly to Team Penske president Tim Cindric. Ruzewski will oversee Team Penske’s IndyCar program, along with the Acura Team Penske IMSA sports car operations.

The retirement of longtime Team Penske executive Clive Howell at the end of 2018 after 39 years of service with the organization triggered the change.

Under Ruzewski, Kyle Moyer and Jon Bouslog have both been promoted to general managers within the organization. Moyer will oversee the Team Penske program that will compete with three full-time entries in the IndyCar Series in 2019. Bouslog will lead the Acura Team Penske program, which will race two full-time DPi entries in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype class in 2019.
