Imagine if he’d had a decent car...
Our Never Give Up Award goes to Fernando
Winning RACER’s Oval Racer of
the Year is another special award
for our team for what was a special
season in 2012. There were so many
worthy drivers who could have won
this award. I just feel honored to be
mentioned in that group. It means
even more to me that it was voted
on by the public. But as nice as it is,
our focus is to keep looking forward.
We want to have an even better
year in 2013 so that we can be back
in this group again. I truly believe the
best is yet to come for this Miller Lite
Ford team and for our sport”
need a star-studded, multi-car team in
order to succeed in NASCAR.
HOW YOU VOTED
OVAL RACER OF THE YEAR
Ryan Hunter-Reay 25.0%
Interesting that the guys running Brad
closest were a couple of IndyCar drivers,
albeit the champ and the Indy 500 winner.
Keselowski’s average finish in Chase races in
2011 and ’ 12 – a Cup-winning improvement.
