Frye handed promotion to become new IndyCar president

IndyCar has promoted Jay Frye to become its president following an organisational shake-up of the motorsport series.

Frye, who has served as IndyCar’s head of competition and operations for three years, starts in his new role on January 1.

His move comes in response to the resignation of CJ O’Donnell as IndyCar’s chief marketing officer, effective at the end of the year.
