The ‘other’ Dale Coyne Racing car wins Firestone 550

Well if the BSA IndyCar had to lose on Saturday night, at least it was like this.

James Jakes and the Boy Scouts of America No. 19 car finished 10th at the Firestone 550 in Texas, but Jakes’ teammate, Justin Wilson, won the whole thing.

Why is that cool?

Well, you know by now that Dale and Gail Coyne, longtime supporters of Scouting and Silver Buffalo Award recipients, generously fund the BSA No. 19 car, giving Scouts of all ages the chance to learn more about the science, technology, engineering, and math that go into racing.

Because of its BSA ties, the No. 19 car gets all the headlines on this blog. But this week we tip our cap to the Coynes’ other car, the No. 18 Sonny’s Bar-B-Q-themed Honda, for winning at the Texas Motor Speedway. See a photo of Dale and Gail celebrating with the No. 18 team above.

The victory marks the second IndyCar Series win for Dale Coyne Racing and the team’s first win on an oval track.

Congratulations, Dale and Gail!

Next race
