President and Chief Executive Officer, Penske Entertainment Corp.

Mark Miles

Mark D. Miles is president and chief executive officer of Penske Entertainment Corp., comprised of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), INDYCAR and IMS Productions (IMSP). Penske Entertainment Corp. is a subsidiary of Penske Corporation, a global transportation, automotive and motorsports leader employing more than 60,000 people worldwide.

From January 2013 to January 2020, Miles was president and chief executive officer of Hulman & Company, the previous parent organization of IMS, INDYCAR and IMS Productions. During this time, Miles and his leadership team presided over the sold-out 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race and several years of attendance and viewership growth for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. 

Prior to entering the world of motorsports, from January 2006 through December 2012, Miles was president and chief executive officer of Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, Inc. (“CICP”), a non-profit, regional alliance of corporate CEOs and university presidents focused on long-term growth and economic development throughout the Central Indiana region, including strategic priorities as wide-ranging as human capital (education), entrepreneurship and innovation, government reform and mass transit. 

In 2008, Miles led a successful effort to earn Indianapolis the right to host Super Bowl XLVI. He was chairman of the board of the 2012 Super Bowl Host Committee, with 18 staff members and thousands of volunteers, and which served as an extension of the National Football League in the local community to centralize planning and execution of the 2012 Super Bowl event.

In conjunction with the 2012 Super Bowl, Miles spearheaded a civic effort known as the Legacy Project to effect positive change throughout the surrounding community. Legacy Project work done on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis created a lasting legacy and impact far beyond game week – with special emphasis on Youth Education Town and revitalization of the East 10th Street business district.

From August 1990 through 2005, Miles was chief executive officer of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). While there, Miles built the ATP into a world-class, professional organization, stabilized a sport that was struggling to compete with other sports and entertainment entities, posted impressive revenue gains, launched innovative marketing initiatives and expanded its global presence through successful events in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

During his years with the ATP, prize money rose from $47 million to $85 million, and long-term commercial sponsorships were put into place, with Mercedes-Benz being established as the ATP’s Premium Partner in 1996. He helped to forge closer ties with the game’s other governing bodies and, along with the ITF, helped return tennis to the Olympics and strengthened the sport’s prominence through the awarding of ATP ranking points for the competition.

In 1984, Miles was chosen to organize and produce the Pan American Games, scheduled to be held in Indianapolis in 1987. As president of the organizing body, he led the $100 million event with 38,000 volunteers and staged the most successful Pan Am Games in history.

From 1985 until 1990, Miles was president and volunteer tournament director of the ATP Indianapolis tournament, where he oversaw its transition from clay to hard courts, while doubling revenues through record ticket sales and sponsor support. Under his leadership, the tournament was awarded the first of 10 consecutive ATP Tournament of the Year awards – an award chosen by the players.

From 1988 to 1990, Miles served as executive director of corporate relations for Eli Lilly and Company, an international pharmaceutical, medical instrument and agricultural chemical company headquartered in Indianapolis.

Miles serves on the board of LDI, Ltd., a century-old family office, funding and operating customer-focused, middle-market company. Miles serves on numerous civic and non-profit boards and committees. 

Miles earned his bachelor’s degree from Wabash College and is a member of the Wabash College Athletic Hall of Fame. 

Mark and his wife, Helen, have four children and five grandchildren and reside in Indianapolis.


President, INDYCAR

Jay Frye

Jay Frye’s tenure as president of INDYCAR has coincided with many impactful moves in essential facets for North America’s premier open-wheel sanctioning body.

Named president in December 2018 after spending the previous three years as INDYCAR’s president of competition and operations, Frye has made significant contributions for both the commercial and competition sides of the business.

NTT, a Fortune Global 500 global informational technology and communications leader, opened the 2019 season as the new series title sponsor. Frye initiated and consummated this multiyear deal that was pivotal to the future growth of the series.

As an indicator of overall series health, 2021 featured entry lists as high as 28 at several NTT INDYCAR SERIES events. It was the highest car counts, outside of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, in over a decade.

In May 2019, Frye spearheaded a partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to design the aeroscreen, an industry-changing, total driver cockpit safety solution, which debuted in the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. The innovative addition to the open-wheel cars proved extremely effective in competition when put to the test.

In October 2020, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ engine manufacturers Chevrolet and Honda extended their long-term agreements with the series. Additionally, Frye is leading the charge on a new engine set to debut in 2023. The 2.4 liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with hybrid technology will further Frye’s mission to advance the series in a sustainable way while staying authentic to the sound of the sport.

In addition, in 2016, Frye introduced an effective rolling five-year plan that serves as a strategic blueprint and assists in cost containment for the teams moving into the future. The impetus for the plan was built around the introduction and successful implementation of the AK-18 universal aero kits in 2018.

That initial five-year plan has extended through the 2026-2028 seasons of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, where Frye has set the series up to continue to succeed strategically and competitively.

For his accomplishments and leadership, he was recognized by Autosport on its prestigious 2019 Motorsports Power List covering the 50 most powerful people in global motorsport.

Frye joined the company in 2013 as chief revenue officer of Hulman Motorsports and led the combined team of INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway sponsorship sales, licensing and account services.

Prior to joining Hulman & Co., Frye flourished in team management roles in the NASCAR industry. He was vice president and general manager for Red Bull Racing’s NASCAR team (2008-2011) and was named 2008 NASCAR Executive of the Year by ESPN and the Kansas City Star. From 1996-2007, Frye was chief executive officer and general manager of MB2 Motorsports, a team he created and built.

Before his executive roles with NASCAR teams, Frye worked at Valvoline Racing, and his extensive sales and marketing experience began with a variety of roles at Anheuser-Busch Inc.

Frye, a native of Rock Island, Illinois, graduated with a marketing/education degree from the University of Missouri, where he played tight end and offensive tackle for four years on the Tigers’ football team. He and his wife, Danielle, have two daughters.

Melangton served on the Executive Leadership team of Indiana Sports Corp. for 20 years, serving the final two years as president from September 2012 until October 2014. She spent four of those years serving as CEO and president of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee from 2008-2012.

Melangton was honored with a “Sagamore of the Wabash” by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels in 2012 and recognized as a “Living Legend” by the Indiana Historical Society in 2014. Sports Business Journal, the nation’s industry-leading publication, named Melangton a recipient of its “Game Changers” award in 2012. In 2017, Melangton received recognition for two Lifetime Achievement Awards, the Jefferson Award for Community Impact and College Mentors for Kids.

Melangton also serves on the board of directors for OneAmerica Financial Partners, Inc., the 2022 College Football Playoff, the 2024 NBA All-Star Game, the St. Vincent Foundation, the 500 Festival and the Indianapolis Economic Club. 

Melangton was nationally recognized with the 2011 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award for working as a liaison between the NFL and the Indianapolis community for the 2012 Super Bowl.

Additionally, Melangton has worked nine Olympic Games, including six as an associate producer for the gymnastics broadcast by NBC Sports, with the most recent being the 2016 summer games in Rio de Janeiro. She has won five Emmy Awards for her work as a member of the NBC Sports broadcast team.
