This week on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin discuss Sunday’s IndyCar race at Texas, won by Josef Newgarden with a daring last corner pass of teammate Scott McLaughlin. They break down McLaughlin’s incredible start to the season with a win at St. Pete and a second at Texas. They talk about the on-track product at the 1.5-mile oval, the crowd size, and whether or not they think IndyCar will be back in 2023.
Later in the show, they speculate about a potential return to the Milwaukee Mile, what would need to happen to make a race viable at the historic track, the effect a race at Milwaukee could have on Road America, and the amount of races on IndyCar’s schedule. Kevin and Curt discuss Jimmie Johnson’s impressive oval debut with a sixth-place finish, and what it could mean for his Indy 500 performance.
