Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud in the No.22 Menards Chevrolet said that it is hard to believe after he turned his pole into a win in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday.
The Frenchman made history with his team as Penske scored their 18th Indianapolis 500 win.
Speaking following the victory, Pagenaud who had an exciting battle with Alexander Rossi commented by saying:
It’s hard to believe right now, to be honest with you. It’s been such an intense race. I believe we led most of the race. The car was just on rails. The yellows came out perfectly. The stars are aligned. Man, wow, I am seeing myself on TV with this. It’s pretty amazing. It’s a dream come true, a lifetime of trying to achieve this. So I’m just speechless. It’s just incredible. I never expected to be in this position but I certainly was trying to make it as hard as I could. I want to thank the fans. The fans are amazing it was awesome to share that with you guys on the Yard of Bricks. You’re the best Indianapolis.
Speaking about his position in the team when asked if it motivated him, Pagenaud said:
It didn’t, I’m just focused on the job, man. When you have a car like this, a team like this, you just work your way. It’s all about achieving and executing at the end, and we did execute perfectly today. No mistakes. Here we are, Victory Lane, man. We did it!
