Tonight on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin open the show with the gaining steam of Andretti Autosport’s bid to join Formula 1. Kevin and Curt discuss the response from Formula 1 on the news that Andretti is partnering with Cadillac and General Motors. Why is there pushback? Why does it threaten the F1 hierarchy as it currently stands? Kevin and Curt break it down and extend the conversation to the relationship between IndyCar and Formula 1. Then, the show turns to driver developments, the seeming inevitability of Takuma Sato running ovals for Chip Ganassi Racing and how money impacts development drivers and filled seats.
In the second hour, Kevin is joined by Dillon Welch from the Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dillon joins the show as Trackside’s event correspondent and participating driver to discuss what’s going on in Tulsa and what makes the Chili Bowl so unique.

After the conversation with Welch, Kevin and Curt continue discussing the Chili Bowl, Will Power racing in Rolex 24 and other news of the day.
