Indycar: Riley named director of engine development

The Verizon IndyCar Series appoints new face to oversee rules and performance standards.
Marvin Riley has joined the Verizon IndyCar Series' technical group as director of engine development, in order to oversee the rules and performance standards for manufacturers Chevrolet and Honda.

"I'm happy to have someone of Marvin's experience join the team," IndyCar vice-president of technology Will Phillips said. "As well as helping to define the future IndyCar powertrain regulations, Marvin will oversee the engine manufacturers' performance and competition to ensure they are competing within the current rules."

Riley, who holds a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Michigan and an MBA from UCLA, has worked the last ten years as a member of Honda Performance Development. He has most recently served as assistant manager of HPD's engine development department where he was responsible for the execution of all major engine performance specifications and test plans.
