Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “George Steinbrenner IV, 22, and Colton Herta, 19, making splash as youngest owner-driver duo at the Indy 500”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

George Steinbrenner IV has a vastly different ownership style than his grandfather, the late Yankees owner. He’s not as outspoken, but the drive to win is there, same as The Boss. (George IV is the son of Yankees co-owner Hank Steinbrenner.)

Make no mistake, though, the younger Steinbrenner is implementing valuable lessons he learned from growing up in the Yankee family.

“My grandfather was my first idol in the sports world. That’s the path I wanted to go down,” he said. “My passions are baseball and racing. [My family] has baseball covered already, so I figured I might as well branch out into my other passion."

“It’s all about the people. We have to make sure we have all the pieces in place, working from the top down. That’s what we’ve done with the Yankees. It’s the same mentality I’ve brought to racing.”

Steinbrenner, along with his rising star driver Colton Herta, is already a winner as the co-owner of an NTT IndyCar Series team.
