With his latest win in Ohio, Pagenaud had increased his lead in the driver championship standings to 58 points. After his win, Pagenaud praised PPG, claiming that it was his PPG Chevrolet that has brought him good luck. Pagenaud was driving his luminous blue and white PPG water-based finish Chevrolet during 3 out of 4 of his wins.
