By David Morgan, Associate Editor BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Mission accomplished. Since arriving at Barber Motorsports Park for Sunday’s Children’s of Alabama Grand Prix, Scott McLaughlin has been steadfast in his beliefs that the heavy penalties handed down by INDYCAR to Team Penske earlier this week wouldn’t keep his No. 3 team down and they answered their detractors emphatically with a dominating win to kick off the comeback in earnest.
