Why did you decide to start your own team?
In 1997, I started MacCachren Motorsports and found out I’m more successful if I have my own team than if I’m driving for somebody else. Obviously, we work within a budget, but I want to win, and sometimes, you have to spend $5000 to try a new part or technology to see if it’s better. We test and try different things to improve, and I’ve been on other teams where that was difficult to do.
How has experience played a role in your success?
As you get older, you look forward to being wiser. If you want to win championships, well, I know how to do that. I’ve been doing it long enough that I’m wise and smart compared to young guys coming in. They’re super fast, but they’re also crashing and getting flats, and that takes them out of the championship.
