Thursday on Trackside, the Indy 500 entry list is finally at 33, and Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin talk about how the Don Cusick/Dragon Speed entry with Stefan Wilson came together, and how Jay Frye and Larry Foyt played a key role in filling the field. They discuss the recent article by Jeff Gluck in The Athletic about Sage Karam’s mental health struggles following his IndyCar accident at Pocono in 2015, and Karam’s upcoming return to Pocono Raceway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Former NASCAR champion crew chief Ray Evernham joins the show to talk about the upcoming Mecum auction at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. We hear from Evernham about Jimmie Johnson’s transition to IndyCar, and some of the cars in his collection, such as Mario Andretti’s Brawner Hawk from 1965.

Our News of the Day, brought to you by the Indianapolis Speedrome and Circle City Raceway is that Formula 1 is back in the United States this week for the Miami Grand Prix, including comments from Bernie Eccelstone.
