Push to Pass [S3E15] – The Speedway Lives Up to It’s Name

Things are starting to feel normal again. Even these hour-long episodes! But I think it’s only fitting when we are lucky enough to have all four of us on, and especially during this Month of May when we are inundated with news and stories every day. Heck, every hour of every day, really. I made it to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Indianapolis 500 weekend and first order of business was to chat with a few drivers! Jack Harvey of Michael Shank/Andretti Autosport, Simon Pagenaud from Team Penske, plus Oriol Servia & Graham Rahal of RLL Racing gave me feedback … Continue reading Push to Pass [S3E15] – The Speedway Lives Up to It’s Name

Alonso’s First Day in Traffic, Andretti Tops Speed Chart

The first day of Indianapolis 500 practice yielded quick lap times, and 11 caution periods. Only one of those caution flags was waved due to an on-track incident.

The car spun 180 degrees as it headed toward the inside exit of the turn and towards the infield. The Holmatro Safety Team responded quickly and Harvey was able to exit the car without assistance. Harvey is making his first IndyCar Series start this year in the Indianapolis … Continue reading Alonso’s First Day in Traffic, Andretti Tops Speed Chart

Coincidently, this Friday is not only the wide-release date for Ron Howard’s RUSH, but it is also my birthday. (I apologize if this goes in a few directions, but that’s kind of how my mind is operating this week so I’m just going to embrace it rather than attempt to … Continue reading Racing is Life
