Parked just a few feet from the iconic pagoda at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, this reimagined EZ-Go golf cart is essentially full of trash. Plastic bottles that were thrown into recycling bins months ago are now neatly stacked in rows – and they’re up for sale.

Going fast too.

The electric cart holds hundreds of Indy 500 T-shirts made from waste. The clothes are as soft as anything on the shelves in regular merchandise stores and cost about the same. And it’s no coincidence that they get an excellent retail space, located mainly at the front door of the famous racetrack.

It’s a cornerstone of IndyCar’s latest effort to go green, dubbed the “Penske Initiative.” The series is taking more and more steps – some bigger than others – towards retaining carbon-neutral racing by 2050. No, really.

What might have been a laughable endeavor just a few years ago now seems like a reasonable goal despite IndyCar’s truckload of fuel and tires, as well as countless pollutants like emissions, chemicals and petroleum products. And that doesn’t include the waste that will come with hosting nearly 300,000 fans at the 106th Indy 500 on Sunday.

“They are small steps,” said longtime IMS president Doug Bowles. “It’s like milliseconds for cars. It doesn’t seem like much, but when you add four or five changes, you suddenly get a tenth of a second. That’s where we are. There are a lot of little things that hopefully will make a big impact at the end of the day. today “.

This includes pausing the traditional balloon release due to concerns about the impact on the environment and wildlife.

Here is a look at some of the most famous projects that Penske Entertainment has undertaken to help fight global warming and do their part to raise the green flag around sustainability:

renewable fuel

IndyCar will become the first North American racing series to use 100% renewable fuels in its racing cars.

Shell, the long-running fuel sponsor of the Open Wheel series, announced plans on Friday to switch to a low-carbon fuel starting in 2023. The new fuel will be a blend of second-generation ethanol derived from waste sugarcane and other biofuels. It will produce fuels made up of 100% raw materials classified as renewable under applicable regulatory frameworks. The oil giant says the fuel will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% compared to fossil gasoline.

“You have to be part of the solutions, and the way it’s done is through these really strong partners who bring the technology in,” said Mark Miles, President and CEO of Penske Entertainment. “The carbon cuts come from technology and great innovators. We have both.”

Renewable tires

Firestone has been making a renewed tire since 2012 and is nearing the finish line to put it on the right track.

The tire manufacturer set up a research center in Mesa, Arizona, a decade ago and hired hundreds of biologists, chemists, and botanists to help develop the guayule bush. Guayule produces natural rubber and appears to be the future of racing tyres.

Nearly 90% of the world’s rubber comes from Hevea brasiliensis in Southeast Asia. Harvesting these trees and returning rubber to North America is expensive and creates a heavy carbon footprint. It is also vulnerable to geopolitical instability.

Guayule is a cheaper and more sustainable alternative that renews itself in about three years and needs about 50% less water than other crops.

Guayule tires, which feature sidewalls painted green, made their IndyCar debut during Friday’s Pit Stop Challenge. They’ll get an even more significant test at the Music City Grand Prix in Nashville, Tennessee in August, when IndyCar uses tires made partly from guayule rubber.

“You don’t want to go straight to the Indianapolis 500,” said Kara Kristolek, director of race tire engineering for Bridgestone Americas Motorsports. “You want to get there in stages. One of the fun things about racing is that every now and then you show something that ends up in the car that you and I are going to drive.”

electric trucks

Penske Truck Leasing used two fully electric trailers to haul all of the racing tires used in May from the Firestone Distribution Center. IndyCar has installed a high-speed charging station in IMS that can come close to fully charging a truck in about three hours. The trucks made six trips to transport 12 trailers full of tyres.

Expanding electric tractors and installing more charging stations could be the next steps to save carbon for a chain that crosses the country regularly.

Composting / Donation

IMS installed a pilot program in May to collect food waste and send it to an off-site composting facility. Ready and unused food, which would have been put in trash bins in previous years, is now stored in a refrigerated trailer to be transported daily to food banks.

mobile goods

An electric golf cart full of clothes made from upcycling, though, got the most attention in Indy this week. The wagon has remained in one place for the past two weeks, but officials plan to make it a renewable market going forward. It has a range of 50 miles and is equipped with a generator instead of LED lights and a POS machine.

Each shirt is made partially from 6 plastic bottles and uses water-based inks. There are five designs that range in price from $32 to $35.

“When people stand there and feel the jersey, they can’t believe it’s made of plastic bottles,” said Ryan Suggs, senior merchandise buyer for IMS and IndyCar. “I was going to say, ‘I don’t buy a T-shirt made out of plastic bottles. That would be rubbish! But this is rubbish that makes you mad.”
