Detroit Grand Prix
Roger Penske for Mayor!
Roger Penske is preparing a presentation for Mayor Kilpatrick and the City Council that will lay out Penske’s plan for bringing open wheeled IRL racing back to Belle Isle.
Penske has already conducted a tour of the old raceway on Belle Isle for some IRL members. Penske is very devoted to bringing business and a bright future to Detroit.
Penske was on the Superbowl board and is heavily involved, if not in charge, of a riverfront development that will bring condos and storefronts to the Detroit River front.
The addition of this yearly race, The Detroit Grand Prix, would be outstanding. Not only would there be a valuable use of Belle Isle, the race would bring a lot of business and excitement to Detroit. The Motor City deserves such an event.
Thanks Mr. Penske for seeing the bright potential of Detroit!
