This week on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin congratulate Alex Palou on winning the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series title. They discuss the surprising but consistent championship run by the 24-year-old Chip Ganassi Racing star. Additionally, they look at the bright future ahead for Palou and the rest of IndyCar’s youth movement. They recap the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, won by Colton Herta, who dominated the final two races of the season. With just 22 weeks until the 2022 season going green, the guys list what off-season question marks remain.
Kevin and Curt talk about Ryan Hunter-Reay’s future and what seats still need to be filled, including the number 45 car for Rahal Letterman Lanigan and the number 20 for Ed Carpenter Racing. Later in the show, they talk about where Santino Ferrucci could drive next year and take questions from listeners, including what Indy Lights will look like now that IndyCar has taken over promoting the series.
