Welcome back to IndyCar 2023! And we already had a complete shitshow of a race to start of the season, where half a dozen cars didn’t make the fourth corner. Welcome back to… chaos?
IndyCar’s back in St Petersburg, and the whole running was dominated by a massive incident at Turn 4 where Scott McLaughlin lost control of his car and clattered into Romain Grosjean in a key flashpoint in a battle for the win. McLaughlin apologised but it brought Dre out into the open with RJ and asked – Is this series actually bullying RoGro here? Or do the standards of driving suck in general? With Will Power shoving Colton Herta into the wall and multiple sloppy incidents… there may be something to that too!
We also talk the silly logistics of the calendar as IndyCar decides to not race for a month after this one, and oh yeah… Marcus Ericsson won a race via fluky means again as Pato O’Ward suffering a plenum fire with just three laps to go! Can he EVER win one normally?!
AND a bonus segment! We recorded this the same day Meyer Shank got clapped for cheating at the Rolex 24… but got to keep the win?! A loaded M101 on the weekend!
