Tonight on Trackside, Kevin Lee is joined by producer Sam Rumpza to assess the IndyCar season at the halfway point. They take stock of which teams have been impressive, and which still have work to do, including a stellar first half from Marcus Ericsson and a disappointing run from Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.
They look back at A.J. Foyt’s final IndyCar win, which came 41 years ago Tuesday in a unique race at Pocono. Kevin discusses Jimmie Johnson’s comments on his IndyCar future, and whether he’ll be back full-time next year. Also, a mention of a possible NASCAR street race at Chicago, and whether IndyCar could be involved. Our News of the Day, brought to you by the Indianapolis Speedrome and Circle City Raceway is the results from IndyCar’s test at Iowa.
Later, Kevin and Curt take listener questions, including about Helio Castroneves’ win in the SRX Series at Pensacola, Florida over the weekend. LMP3 drivers Nolan Siegal and Dakota Dickerson join the show ahead of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 6 Hours of Watkins Glen.
