INDIANAPOLIS – It’s been six years since Roger Penske last visited Victory Circle at the Indianapolis 500.
That must seem like an eternity to a guy who has won the biggest race in the world 15 times since Mark Donohue gave Penske his first victory here in 1972.
But the 78-year-old Penske is philosophical about the recent victory drought.
`We’ve won a lot, but we also know that this place is not easy,’’ Penske said. “You don’t just show up and win. It takes a tremendous amount of work and preparation.
“Sometimes the breaks just go against you. But we come here every year thinking we can win the race, and this year is no exception,’’ he added. “We think we have four drivers here capable of winning the race if we do everything right, make the fewest mistakes out there.’’
