“I’m not ignorant to that,” Gilles said. “I’m going to watch every race next year. I’m very interested in what’s going on in NASCAR.”
“It’s very difficult to replicate the Penske situation,” Gilles said. “What a team! Nothing but respect for Roger’s professionalism, his attention to detail. I think he’s brought a formula to the sport that others are probably going to have to start emulating because he’s really done a lot with very little. Of course, he’s got great resources, but it’s laser focus.”
Given what Penske did in 2012 _ especially with the championship _ no one will question whether the two-car team will be able to compete with larger organizations.
“It’s not how much you put into a race team,” Penske said. `It’s about the people.”
