Team Penske celebrated in style last night for what was dubbed #Penske50, as the team celebrates its 50-year anniversary in motorsports. If you didn’t see Tom Brokaw’s narration of the team’s 50-year celebration video, it’s linked here.

Some 43 of its 85 career drivers, among a star-studded lineup of crew and other key racing stakeholders, were at the event in Charlotte. The event noted all of Penske’s achievements in open-wheel, sports cars and NASCAR and featured a number of amazing guests and Penske alumni.

And the team, and the drivers, hit it hard on social media.

We’ll attempt to round it up as best we can, below:
