Coming to you from Hawaii we review the Iowa Race from a week ago, preview Toronto, and address the rumors. Of course we take every opportunity to dish out shade on Marco Andretti, continue our growing love for Ed Carpenter, and reveal Molly's slight driver crush. Shit got crazy when we were on vacation so we address all the rumors we found on the internet, including Hinch wanting to try NASCAR, the Andretti switch to Honda (including an epic #TeamHonda rant), all sorts of Penske issues, #BringBackDavisson, and #ManBunWatch - yep we're looking at you J.R.! We're on vacation so be warned!
Another week without a race, so we preview both Iowa (Oval) and Toronto (Road Course), and then discuss which is better. Spoiler alert - speed always wins with two girls from Speedway! There's of course some nostalgia about growing up in Speedway, #LiquorandLights, #Driven2SaveLives, and Molly's Mom taking on the Penske team. Molly, #TeamHonda, gripes way too much about Honda's issues; and Abby relives some memories from participating in the 500 Festival Parade and marching around IMS. There's also a guest appearance by a firework because 'Merica. Keep on listening, next week we take this shit show on the road!
Kohler Grand Prix happened and we now like road courses. We talk strategy about tires, pits, push to pass (which we love), and our continued thoughts on grass on the courses. Heads up we're starting to get #OpinionatedAF about drivers including our thoughts on who should have been Rookie of the Year, Will Power bringing it to Millennials, Helio Castroneves, and someone's true feelings about TK. Also, we're putting our money where our mouths are, Conor's car may be haunted (#ConorCarWatch) but for each race he finishes, we're each donating $10 to diabetes research. Stay turned - we're taking this shit show on the road soon!
There may have been no IndyCar activity this week, but something huge happened! We get #FeistyAF discussing the bullshit idea of a seperate league for female racers. We stand firmly behind all female racers, and get feisty defending them! (oh also Le Mans happened and we take bets on Kohler GP)
Shit gets real deep in the heart of Texas: it unfortunately overshadows the Dual in Detroit. We talk about tires and crashes. We start #ConorCarWatch and the big question "is racing a gentlemen's sport or not"?. Thankfully there's no Indy Car actions this upcoming weekend, we all need a break (too bad up next is Le Mans!).
Still in the afterglow of the 101st Running and our trip to the Victory Banquet we just discuss the Greatest Weekend in Racing, the Greatest Spectale in Racing, and quite possibly the Greatest Protective Order in Racing. Things get real when we start talking about drivers. We also get nostalic about growing up in Speedway (including family adventures around the race, and why the Haughville Taco Bell is actually better then the one in Speedway). Also we ramble because, well it's a natural high in May.
Fresh off our first Indy Grand Prix and a hectic weekend of Fast Friday, Qualification Saturday, and Pole Day we talk about all things checkered, memes, our WCW Beth Boles, and of course #IndyCar.
