REV BACKYARD THE SETTING FOR HELIO CASTRONEVES INTERVIEW
It’s not every day you’ll find a news crew interviewing a three-time Indianapolis 500 winner in your own backyard. But then again, it’s not every day that same driver notches his 50th career pole win in 20 IndyCar seasons.
All the above took place in the backyard of REV Group CEO and President Tim Sullivan. Lance Allan from Today’s TMJ4 held a one-on-one interview with REV Group ambassador and Team race car driver Helio Castroneves on June 24 during REV Group’s Road America weekend race celebrations got under way.
Both Wisconsin and REV Group have treated Castroneves well.
“Wisconsin was my first pole position in 1999, so I love to come to a place where it’s been good to me,” Castroneves said during the video interview.
And of course, Castroneves was in REV Corporate’s backyard, too — REV’s Milwaukee headquarters, just up the road from Elkhart Lake, where Castroneves netted his milestone pole win in 1 minute, 41.30 seconds at Road America.
“I’m excited. This company is so big, and I’m in the driver seat carrying the REV logo,” said Castroneves, commenting on the Road America race. “It shows we’re on the right track.”
