Meyer Shank Racing team co-owner Mike Shank says that the organization has worked so hard to get to this spot where they have now won the biggest motor race in the world, the Indianapolis 500. Speaking to Paddock Eye during a conference call on Wednesday, Shank said this is it when asked where the 500 ranked in terms of his accomplishments as a team owner.

We have worked so hard to get to this spot, my wife, my partners, Jim, winning the Rolex 24 Hours in 2012 was big but this is it, numro one.

Shank was asked on the same call if Sunday’s result changed the team’s mindset to go to a two-car full-time outfit for the rest of the season to which he said absolutely not, that when it comes to his partners not just Jim Meyer and Helio he has been very consistent that this has to be the path and that if this is not the path he predicts doom and not good things.

The team will revert back to a single-car operation in the NTT IndyCar Series with Jack Harvey in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda for the double header in Detroit next weekend.
