“Just luck of the draw. We still had a car capable of getting there but it was nice not to have to push real hard. I was able to set my own pace. I just made sure I got out one or two car lengths and tried to keep the pace at what I wanted. If they started to put the heat on me. I would’ve had to pick it up. Those guys are good. In the 50 laps in the beginning, I was going super super easy because I knew at the end, you’re not going to have much tire left,” O’Sullivan said.
