Penske Racing president has 2nd job with son’s car
Carefully, too, of course.
“My day job’s a lot easier than being a father and a car owner,” he said Tuesday during a break from IndyCar testing at Barber Motorsports Park.
Austin Cindric is the only 14-year-old currently competing in that series. Part of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder, USF2000 lowered its age limits to allow 14-year-olds to seek admission this year and dad thinks he’s up to the challenge.
Even with that kind of backing, watching your son speed around tracks is a little more anxiety-inducing than when Penske IndyCar veterans like Will Power and Helio Castroneves get behind the wheel.
“For me as a father, I’d much rather he have a golf club in his hand than a steering wheel.”
Austin, says the proud dad, is “basically a straight-A student” who plays in the band at Cannon School in Concord, N.C.
He got a little ribbing from the Andretti crew for doing homework for a Chinese class in between testing sessions at a previous stop. Then came another reality check.
“He went from running 150 miles an hour to going back to the eighth grade,” Cindric said. “He said it’s a pretty big change.”
