Anton Hulman "Tony" George (born December 30, 1959) is a member of the board for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hulman & Company. He was formerly the CEO of both entities. He founded the Indy Racing League and co-owns Vision Racing.
Tony George is the grandson of Tony Hulman, who purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the end of World War II. He is a former driver, having competed in the 1989 Indy Lights championship, finishing 12th in points and capturing 5 top-tens. His mother (and Hulman's daughter), Mari Hulman George (born 1934), serves as the speedway's Chairman and delivers its famed "ladies and gentlemen, start your engines" before every Indianapolis 500. Tony George became president and CEO of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation after the death of Joe Cloutier in 1989. He resigned on June 30, 2009 as CEO of IMS and Hulman & Company to focus more time on the Indy Racing League.
During his first few years as Speedway head, he oversaw new projects such as Tower Terrace Suites, pit lane reconstruction (including the addition of a warm-up lane requested by many influential Speedway alumni), and a control tower.
