The word on the street is that Terry Angstadt has been offered the job of IndyCar CEO and John Lopes is moving into the Chief Financial Officer role at IndyCar to replace Richard McComb.
But, according to both parties, the word is untrue.
“It’s certainly something that’s crossed my mind but I have not had one communicative about it,” said Angstadt, the former commercial division president of the Indy Racing League who landed IZOD in as series sponsor four years ago. [In other words he would love to have the job.]
“We raised a whole lot of revenue when we were there and, obviously, I’m familiar with the territory and the players. But I have not had that conversation.”
Indianapolis Motor Speedway president Jeff Belskus is the acting CEO of IndyCar and has said on a couple occasions he would be comfortable in that role while Mark Miles, the new CEO of Hulman & Company, said he was searching for a permanent leader of the IZOD IndyCar series. More at speed.com
Belskus and Lopes have been seen having dinner a few times in Indianapolis and the speculation was that a deal was being made to bring Lopes to IndyCar. speed.com
