Speedway, IN -

In the 20 year history of NASCAR racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Larry McReynolds came close to winning multiple times. However, fate always seemed to intervene and a victory for one of his drivers never materialized. Even so, he is one of the select few people who really knew how to build a car that consistently contended for the win at The Brickyard.

Before tomorrow’s race at the historic track, McReynolds took time to talk about the upcoming race and what it means to so many drivers.

“Indianapolis Motor Speedway, probably one of the most famous race tracks, not only in the country but in the world,” he said. “I think everybody, no matter what you’re racing, you think about and dream about running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.”

McReynolds says this race is also important because of the time it hits on the NASCAR schedule.

“I think it comes at a time of our season where all the teams, they’ve taken everything they’ve learned and they’ve stacked it into one package,” he said. “It’s amazing, this weekend, how many brand new race cars are going to be there because teams have taken things they’ve learned from testing and they’ve built a brand new race car trying to incorporate every bit of it.”

Kevin Harvick captured the pole position for Sunday's race, setting a new track record. The green flag is set to drop at 1:20 p.m.
