Roger Penske officially completed his acquisition of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway earlier this week, and thanks to decades of business and racing knowledge, he immediately recognized the biggest change that needed to be made: an overhaul of the awful men's bathroom troughs.
AP racing writer Jenna Fryer addressed Mr. Penske's ambition to overhaul the troughs in a tweet the other day:
Mark Miles wouldn't confirm that the troughs are going away, but he said Mr. Penske is very aware of trying to improve "the fan experience". According to the IndyStar, that could include other changes coming to the bathrooms as well...
I thank The Captain for recognizing this blemish on the sparkling reputation of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It's a place that we all love dearly and I'm looking forward to the sense of pride we will all now have in 21st century bathroom facilities.
