This week, we’re honored to welcome back to the More Front Wing podcast a driver who is now a confirmed entrant for the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500, Pippa Mann. Paul spoke with Pippa about a number of topics, including her long road back to the cockpit after last racing an IndyCar at the ill-fated 2011 Las Vegas race, her excitement regarding the upcoming Month of May at Indianapolis, her response to the massive fan support she has received, and many other topics.
And as the Firestone Indy Lights series heads to Indianapolis Motor Speedway today for its first test of the Month of May, Steph caught up with Andretti Autosport driver Zach Veach to review his season to date, his ascent through the Mazda Road to Indy ladder, how to fix the ailing car counts, his off-track accomplishments, and his hopes for the future both in the short term at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and in the long term as he looks toward the IZOD IndyCar Series.
Throughout it all, Paul and Steph are joined by MFW contributor and editor of IndyCarAdvocate.com Zachary Houghton to look at some of the hot topics within the sport such as the car count for Indianapolis, the revelations of team(s) in financial trouble, and the upcoming race weekend in Brazil.
