Podcast: How to win the Indy 500, with Mike Shank

Jun 8 2021

The Race IndyCar Podcast goes behind the scenes of the upstart team that won the Indianapolis 500, Meyer Shank Racing, with its co-owner Mike Shank, who also helps answer listeners’ questions in this special episode.

Shank discusses the celebrations from the Indy 500, what the result means to the team, how its technical tie-up with Honda and Andretti Autosport was crucial for success and what direction the squad is set to take in the future.

What’s next for four-time 500 winner Helio Castroneves is also discussed, while the team’s co-owner Jim Meyer and its backing from Formula 1 owner Liberty Media are probed in greater detail.

Regular co-host JR Hildebrand answers questions with his perspective from behind the visor with AJ Foyt Racing in this year’s Indy 500, while The Race’s Jack Benyon also takes listeners’ points on the season so far.

With Detroit coming up this weekend, the duo also talk about the street circuit double-header, and how hard that is to adapt to following a month at Indianapolis.
