“Snap-on is deeply rooted in motorsports, and we look forward to continuing this partnership,” said Mark Miles, president and CEO of Penske Entertainment Corp., which owns INDYCAR and IMS. “The tools and equipment provided by Snap-on are an ideal match for the Makers and Fixers who perform at the highest caliber at every INDYCAR event and throughout the IMS season.”
