This week’s The Race IndyCar Podcast delves into controversial crashes, a win from a lap down, and Nashville’s place on the calendar with the kind of divisive racing it produces.
Co-hosts Jack Benyon and JR Hildebrand analyse how Scott Dixon went from being hit and losing a significant chunk of his downforce to winning the Nashville race, and the context of how impressive that is given everything impacting the Chip Ganassi Racing team this year.
Hildebrand breaks down the Josef Newgarden/Romain Grosjean controversy from a driver’s perspective, as the hosts also discuss whether this incident may be a result of how IndyCar is policed week-to-week.
Some of the pros and cons of the event are also examined in a bid to look at how good an IndyCar race Nashville is, because the exciting and unpredictable racing is offset by crashes, many cautions, and some questionable driving standards.
