• Has two wins at CMS (2010 fall and 2012 spring) and has reeled off nine consecutive top-10 finishes at the 1.5-mile track dating back to the 2008 May race.

“You just continue to pick up so much speed at Charlotte that you have to stay ahead of the track as far as having enough travel on the front of the car to not be on the splitter by the end of the race. As the outside temperature cools down, you get a little bit more downforce and you get a little bit more horsepower with the engine. I want to do well at Charlotte because I like that track and it’s one of my favorite places. The fact that I get to sleep in my own bed is nice on top of all that other stuff. Charlotte, Indianapolis and Daytona are the races that a lot of people really want to run well at.”
--Sam Hornish Jr.

“Racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway always meant a great deal to me. With our win there in May, my first as a crew chief, it will mean even more. We’re bringing a new Discount Tire Dodge Challenger to the track and we feel like it’s one of the best cars we’ve produced since I’ve been at Penske Racing.”
