Gavin and Milner take No. 4 Corvette C7.R to Victory Lane at Long Beach – Winning Driver’s Quotes with Jim Campbell Quote

TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SIRIUS XM CORVETTE C7.R, RACE WINNER:  “There is something about Long Beach. Something about having magic here. I don’t know what it is.  We had it today. We had it last year.  Whatever it is, I want to keep it.  Really tough race today. The track was really, really tough with the marbles off line. Super difficult.  I almost threw it away on the last corner, last lap.  Really, really tough conditions. But, Corvette was great.  Michelins were great. They were super strong right to the end.  Just had that little bit of magic, litle bit of luck and that’s all we needed today!”

OLIVER GAVIN, NO. 4 MOBILE 1/SIRIUS XM CORVETTE C7.R, RACE WINNER:  NOTE-TODAY’S VICTORY IS THE 50TH FOR GAVIN DRIVING FOR CORVETTE RACING:  “Amazing the way that all came around.  Yes we had a little bit of luck, but Tommy had to drive brilliantly at the end there and stay out of trouble. There were a number of incidents there.  Man, we could have gotten taken out. We could have gotten in the wall.  Tommy just navigated.  We had a great pit stop. The guys did an amazing job at the stop.  We jumped a number of people and put us in position there we we could challenge for that victory. And we got it!  That is our first win in season No. 20 for Corvette Racing. And it is my 50th victory with the team. That is pretty amazing. I am just thrilled.”

JIM CAMPBELL, US VICE PRESIDENT PERFORMANCE VEHICLES AND MOTORSPORTS: “This team just does not give up.  While we didn’t have the ideal starting position, Olly and Tommy took advantage of every opportunity on track and the crew executed in the pits. Congratulations to the #4 Corvette team for back-to-back wins at Long Beach.”
