THREE-TIME NASCAR SPRINT CUP CHAMPION
I’ve been very fortunate to
drive a lot of different race
cars, but my favorite? It’s
tough to pick just one but…
I think I’d probably pick the
Lola I drove in 1996 in the
IRL when I was a rookie at the Indy 500.
That was just a fun racecar. It was the first
year of IRL [ex-CART cars] and so they were
all turbocharged. We basically had 1,000hp
and that’s the highest in IRL history. The
downforce and steering on those cars was
just right. We ran really, really fast with
that car and yet it was very easy to tune it
and to find a good balance with it.
