SPEEDWAY, Indiana – Former IMS President Doug Boles was demoted during the first annual NASCAR Cup race on the IMS road course on Sunday to track crew member due to the turn 6 curbing wrecking many cars. “He’s trading in his blue suit and tie for a blue jumpsuit,” said IMS owner Roger Penske, “I appreciate what Doug has done for IMS during his stint as President, but the track crew need a good leader, so insert Doug.”

It is not yet clear who will take over the IMS Presidency but signs are pointing to Indycar racer Ed Carpenter’s father.
