Miles Announces Resignation of INDYCAR President Derrick Walker

INDIANAPOLIS (July 30, 2015) — Mark Miles, CEO, Hulman & Company, announced that Derrick Walker, President ofĀ Competition & Operations, INDYCAR, has decided to leave the company effective Aug. 31, 2015, in order to pursue other professional opportunities. A search for his replacement is under way.

WalkerĀ has made several important contributions that advanced INDYCAR as a sanctioning body.
