MICHIGAN WAS THE TRACK YOU GOT YOUR FIRST WIN AT FOR TEAM PENSKE. HOW IMPORTANT OF A PLACE IS IT TO YOU AND RP?

“Obviously, maybe outside of Indy and Daytona for the 500, it’s one of the most important places for us as a company. We are right there in the backyard of Ford, so to win at Michigan means a lot to them. With all of the car companies right there, you want to have bragging rights. And with Roger owning Michigan in the past, that makes it even more special to him. After winning there in 2013, the place holds a special meaning to me as well. We set a new record in qualifying that day, led a bunch of laps and then ended up passing Mark Martin for the win. That was pretty cool. We had a great car and to pull into victory lane and see all of my guys celebrating our first win together was pretty cool. I feel like that really put this 22 team on the map that we would be contenders.”
