MP 888: The Week In IndyCar, July 29, Listener Q&A

July 29, 2020

It's another packed episode of The Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show, all driven by questions submitted via social media.

 

A sampling of the items posed this week (Q&A begins at the 22m00s mark in the episode):

 

"Of the drivers you seen throughout the years what driver made the best use of their sponsorship airtime for being slow? I use Jay Hill from 92 Detroit race as example. While off pace his Coke sponsor car would appear in the background and foreground on TV cameras finishing a serviceable 13th in his only career start."

 

"With Portland and Laguna cancelled; there will now be 5 races as well as Indy 500 qualifying and practice in 22 days in August; given the likelihood of high temperatures at most races. Is this asking too much of drivers and mechanics just to get a meaningful season done?"

 

"Why, instead of doing double headers of WWT and Mid-Ohio after the cancellation of the west coast races, couldn't IndyCar visit a couple ovals that NASCAR has, like Kansas or Kentucky, just for a change of pace? I do enjoy Mid-Ohio and WWT, I just feel like this would be a decent time to experiment."
