It’s another packed episode of The Week In IndyCar as Colton Herta returns for his second visit in seven days after winning the IndyCar Classic at Circuit of The Americas. The Harding Steinbrenner Racing driver takes us inside his busy life since winning at COTA, the new album he’s almost ready to release, and answers great questions submitted via social media in our listener-driven show.
Herta is followed by insights from Scott Dixon’s assistant engineer Kate Gundlach, who helped the Chip Ganassi Racing driver to win his fifth IndyCar championship, and we close the interviews with Holland’s rising star Rinus VeeKay, the reigning Pro Mazda champion, who already has one win in Indy Lights with Juncos Racing and is chasing the $1.2 million advancement prize to become an IndyCar star of the future.
We wrap show with a long list of questions sent in for host and IndyCar reporter Marshall Pruett with everything from Honda engine reliability to listener’s thoughts on the non-use of Formula 1 track limits at COTA’s Turn 19.
