Austin Cindric on losing a championship in November: I’ve never been in so much pain

Austin Cindric still hasn't forgotten what happened to him at the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship race. When ftw.usatoday asked him if he regretted losing the second consecutive championship to Daniel Hemric by 0.03 seconds, he replied “Every moment of every day,” It seems that Cindric could not mentally endure such a defeat, and that it put a lot of pressure on him “I’ve never been in so much pain that I wanted to vomit,” Cindric said.

“Never in my life have I been in so much pain, felt like I let so many people down that I’ve wanted to just throw up on the sport”. But still, Austin achieved its first NASCAR highest level victory a few days ago, at the Daytona 500 “This makes up for losing the championship last year,” Cindric said.

“It’s a racer’s dream, and so many people get close to it. And I feel very grateful and very proud to be able to pull it off”.

Roger Penske is pleased with his driver

Roger Penske is pleased with his driver who came to victory in a phenomenal way “If you looked at Austin this week and the way he ran, he didn’t make a mistake today,” said team owner Roger Penske “He was up second, third, almost the entire race, and then at the end to be able to pull it off, shows you the quality of kid he is and also the experience that he already has as a young man”.

Blaney also had great merit in that “I was able to get Austin in front and off of 4, where we were good enough to make a move,” Blaney said. “I got blocked and I ended up getting fenced. I’m happy for Roger Penske, winning the 500 on his birthday. I’m happy for Jeremy Bullins and everyone that works on that 2 car”.
