December 20, 2022
With the holidays upon us, Pit Pass Indy Host Bruce Martin has an exclusive interview with Team Penske IndyCar Program General Manager Kyle Moyer. Moyer is a 30-year veteran of IndyCar racing, beginning in the 1980s when he swept the floors at Gary Bettenhausen’s race shop in Monrovia, Indiana. Moyer was with Galles-Kraco Racing from 1989-92, working with the great Al Unser, Jr. when that driver won the Indianapolis 500 in 1992.
Moyer had an extremely successful tenure at Team Kool Green, which ultimately became Andretti Autosport. Moyer played a key role in the team that include Indianapolis 500 victories by Jacques Villeneuve in 1995, Dan Wheldon in 2005, Dario Franchitti in 2007 and Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2014. The team also won IndyCar Series championships with Villeneuve in 1995, Tony Kanaan in 2004, Wheldon in 2005 and Hunter-Reay in 2012.
Moyer moved over to Team Penske in 2015. Since that time, Team Penske has won three of its record 18 Indianapolis 500s including Juan Pablo Montoya in 2015, Will Power in 2018 and Simon Pagenaud in 2019. Josef Newgarden won IndyCar championships in 2017 and 2019 and Power won his second IndyCar title in 2022.
In addition to overseeing the entire Team Penske IndyCar effort, Moyer also calls race strategy for driver Scott McLaughlin on the No. 3 Chevrolet.
In Bruce Martin’s exclusive interview for Pit Pass Indy, Moyer looks back at a successful 2022 season for Team Penske and looks ahead to the 2023 NTT IndyCar Series season.
