MP 715: First Wings at Indy, with Mario Andretti and Bobby Unser

December 29, 2019

Racing legends Mario Andretti and Bobby Unser visit the Marshall Pruett Podcast to take us back to Indianapolis in the late 1960s where wings were first allowed at the 500. Uncle Bobby would win his first of three Indy 500s in 1968, the last year without wings, and Andretti followed in 1969, winning 50 years ago while making use of wings for the first time.

Both men, starting with Andretti, discuss the development of aerofoils and the introduction of meaningful downforce to the Indy 500, which went through a rapid series of developments into the 1970s and early 1980s, where Unser scored his final Indy 500 win.

It's the testing, trials, and failures in bringing wings to Indy, as told by two of the most technically savvy icons the sport has known.

MP 713: Inside the Porsche-Coke Throwback Program

December 29, 2019

One of the most exciting surprises from 2019 was delivered by Porsche North America and Coca-Cola as the two iconic brands reunited for a one-off collaboration at IMSA's season finale at Petit Le Mans as the Nos. 911 and 912 Porsche 911 RSRs wore liveries that paid tribute to the Porsche race cars of the 1980s that carried Coke's branding.

In a special feature on the Marshall Pruett Podcast, the three people from Porsche who were responsible for the concept and creation of the throwback program with Porsche, Dave Engelman, spokesperson for Motorsports and Brand Heritage, Scott DeVault, E-Performance marketing manager, and Scott Bartlett, Motorsports & Driving Events manager, tell the backstory of how an idea turned into a raging success for the 2019 IMSA GT Le Mans champions.

MP 708: Al Unser Jr’s Near 1989 Indy 500 Win

December 22, 2019

Two-time Indy 500 winner Al Unser Jr joined me in May to discuss the 1989 race where he came incredibly close to earning his first victory before a clash with Emerson Fittipaldi sent his Galles Racing Lola-Chevy into the Turn 3 wall. The incident, and his unfathomable response to Fittipaldi after climbing from the battered car is, as he shares, no less remarkable 30 years after it took place.
