Daytona 500 winning car on display at the Motorsports Hall of Fame

Daytona 500 Champion owner Roger Penske, driver Austin Cindric and crew chief Jeremy Bullins pushed the winning car to its resting place at the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in Daytona Beach on Tuesday.

It will be on display until the 2023 Daytona 500.

“Knowing it’s sitting here for all race fans to see and appreciate makes you think back to that race. I’ll think about that for the rest of my life,” Cindric said.

But it almost didn’t happen this year.

Teams were concerned about having a large enough inventory of next-generation cars to start the NASCAR season.

“We spoke to NASCAR and we were able to work out the details because it’s not just a supply chain situation in the industry, it’s also with our cars and parts. But it worked out well,” said Team Penske owner Roger Penske.

Along with Cindric’s winning car on display, he will soon have his face on the Daytona Wall of Winners. He says that moment is still surreal.

“It’s certainly something I will cherish for a long time. It carries a lot of weight,” Cindric said.
