They discuss his standby replacement for this weekend’s race on the IMS road course, Santino Ferrucci, and what the Connecticut native could bring to Team Penske. Kevin and Curt also speculate about other drivers that could have been options to fill in.
Later, they talk about O’Ward’s victory in the second race, what this weekend meant for the championship chase, and Jimmie Johnson’s strong weekend. Our News of the Day, brought to you by the Indianapolis Speedrome and Circle City Raceway is the controversial finish from Indy Lights on Saturday, in which Linus Lundqvist was penalized three positions, giving the win to Hunter McElrea.
