The Month of May is here, and it’s time to get through the halfway point of IndyCar’s biggest month of the year. In this episode, Dre Harrison and RJ O’Connell break down both the GMR Grand Prix on the Indy Road Course and Qualifying for this weekend’s 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500.
And so far, Alex Palou is one step away from doing what Simon Pagenaud did in 2019 and sweeping the entire month! He dominated the GMR Grand Prix and then broke Scott Dixon’s new record of the fastest pole run in Indy 500 history, with the entire front row cracking 234mph. Is Palou the greatest #10 car driver since Dario Franchitti? And should he really be considering a McLaren switch if the 2024 rumours are true?
And we swing the pendulum on a rollercoaster month for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. Christian Lundgaard had another incredible race at the road course finishing 4th, only to nearly get bumped in a disastrous qualifying session for the 500 where all of their cars were stuck in 30th or lower, and only Katherine Legge made the show automatically. Jack Harvey bumping out his own teammate, another Bump Day shock for the ages… or so we thought at the time…
…All that and some of the incredible stories that made up the grid, like RC Enerson, Callum Illot, Agustin Canapino and more mentioned in a Month of May Indianapolis special!
