Ben Croke

Team Principal, Dick Johnson Racing

Ben joined what was then DJR Team Penske in 2016 as crew chief, overseeing the mechanics on both cars and getting his hands dirty.

His extensive experience in motorsport, with legendary teams like Perkins Engineering and Stone Brothers Racing, is even more impressive when a stint in Eurupe and the BTCC is added in.

Ben was promoted to Team Manager in 2017, and in addition to proudly leading the Team to win two Pirtek Pit Stop Challenge trophies, won three drivers championships, taking his career total to seriously enviable six.

An instrumental part of the team and with enormous capability to match, Ben succeeded Ryan Story in 2021, becoming Team Principal of Dick Johnson Racing. Even so, he still manages to get his hands dirty on race weekends!

Highly respected in the pit lane, in 2022 Ben became a member of the Supercars Commission.
