Max Crawford on Penske Technology Group
By: Bill King

Car builder Max Crawford told us a bit more about the partnership with Penske Technology Group: "It's an agreement between us to enhance our technology obviously and to help promote the Penske Technology Group - formerly ARC - wind tunnel, 7-post rig and all the scanning devices [Ed.: three-dimensional laser mapping technology]. So it's a hand-holding thing between the two of us: we help them and they help us.

"Of course, we do a lot of wind tunnel models for them as well and for their aero customers. We've had a model shop for years. In fact, we've done wind tunnel models for Penske as far back as when Rusty (Wallace) raced the Pontiac. The model shop, of course, is all behind closed doors, very proprietary."
