We got a little slap-happy this go-round! That’s what happens when you take four race fanatics, a lack of sleep and inject the excitement of the Verizon IndyCar Series season-opening race weekend!
We welcome Gerhett Ferdenburgh to the Push to Pass family this week as he gives us the skinny on the Mazda Road to Indy! It’s a new weekly segment on the podcast and we think you’re going to love it.
Jay Howard is set to get back behind the wheel of an Indy car for the first time since May of 2011 – we discuss the announcement that he’ll be piloting the Team One Cure entry with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. The reality of getting closer to a third engine manufacturer entering the Series in as soon as 2 seasons from now leads to some debate on who that could be and if this would open the door to even more down the line – would that be a good thing or a bad thing? Zach and I agree to disagree – take a listen for more and tell us who you side with by tagging us on social media with YOUR opinion!
Hinch putting the pedal down in Rome this month and Dixon’s sponsor announcement for this weekend in St. Pete are a taste of the other talking points.
NOTE: We had some audio issues this week, please accept our apologies for the lower quality audio.
