The Week In IndyCar, August 19, with Bryan Herta

By

Bryan Herta, co-owner of the Indianapolis 500 pole-winning Andretti Herta Autosport No. 98 Honda driven by Marco Andretti, joins us for The Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show, driven by questions submitted by fans via social media.

A sampling of the items posed this week:

  • “Has Marco taken a different approach to this years 500 so far? Or has the car just been that good since the start?”
  • “What’s the inspiration for that calm, smooth-as-silk radio voice? (‘clutch and coast’ from ‘16, ‘weight jacker’ from Sunday)…”
  • “I heard you once say Dan Wheldon would encourage the team saying, ‘C’mon boys, you’ve got to make me look good.’ What work happens 30 days before the 500 prepping a car to make a driver look good? And, if you want to answer, what’s a 500 memory of Dan you remember vividly?”
  • “With your son, a drummer in a Punk band, and Marco’s love of Rap music, who controls the radio when you are in the car on a taco run? More importantly, what is coming out of those speakers?”
