Sorry this one’s a little late folks, Dre was caught up with the day job, but allow yourself to catch up with what we thought about one of the most chaotic races in recent times, the 2024 Detroit Grand Prix!

It was THE chaotic race of 2024. Eight cautions, 12 driving penalties handed out (Four of which to Will Power, whose race position looked like an EKG monitor), and FORTY-SEVEN per cent of the race ran under yellow, including 20 straight in the middle of a damp Detroit where everyone was caught out by the bumpy braking point into Turn 3 on Chambers Street. Yikes.

In the end, Scott Dixon kept a cool head and did what he does best – save fuel brilliantly when a race broke out at the end and lead a Honda 1-2-3-4 in Chevrolet’s back yard, and the gang try to make sense of one of the craziest IndyCar races in modern times, including a Penske implosion!

But there was also two major PR nightmare the series delivered that we had to discuss – Santino Ferrucci having a shoving match with Kyle Kirkwood and dropping a homophobic remark when interviewed about it (Right on the first day of Pride Month). Then Agustin Canapino and the first part of his verbal tirade after Theo Pourchaire hit him during the race, and Ricardo Juncos calls him a “Son of a thousand whores” on the team radio. There’ll be more on this next week, but see where the story began.

All that and more on another Motorsport101!
