This week on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin look ahead to this weekend’s festivities and the schedule for the IndyCar season opener on the streets of St. Petersburg. They discuss the recent “Back Home Again” commercial voiced by David Letterman, and the high level of interest in the Indy 500, which is less than 100 days away. Kevin and Curt mention Sunday’s Daytona 500 which was won by Austin Cindric, son of Team Penske president and Indy native Tim Cindric. They talk about whether the 23-year-old could one day drive in the Indy 500. 

They discuss Colton Herta’s hot streak, as he enters the weekend winner of two races in a row and as the defending champ at St. Pete. They also break down which drivers need to have a sense of urgency going into the first race of a 17-race season. In the second hour, the guys talk about Mario Andretti’s recent tweet about his son Michael’s bid to start a new Formula 1 team starting in 2024. Finally, they speculate on which drivers could make an Alex Palou-like jump in 2022 and be a surprise championship contender.
