Cars Yeah with Mark Greene

In 1977 his role changed to Penske GM Power, then to Penske Power Systems, and again to Penske Truck Leasing in 1983. In his spare time he was a weekend warrior on Penske Indy Cars in the CART series. He was Chief Mechanic on three different National Championship teams, Trans Am with Chevrolet and Can Am with the Porsche 917s. He’s worked with a number of championship drivers including Bobby Allison, Mario Andretti, Mark Donohue, George Follmer, Al and Bobby Unser, and David Hobbs to name just a few.
