Tonight on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin continue discussing the upcoming weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the big off-track news that Chip Ganassi is suing Alex Palou. They discuss the likelihood that Palou is in the No. 10 car next season and what’s in his best interest as a driver next year. How much do Palou’s actions have to do with the possibility that he might be in the running for a Formula 1 seat at McLaren?
Kevin and Curt once again touch on Devlin DeFrancesco’s situation with Andretti reportedly exploring options for the No. 29 car. Also, who is going to drive the No. 2 car in Indianapolis? After Josef Newgarden’s crash in Iowa, Kevin and Curt discuss the latest on the story and what they’ve heard over the last 24 hours, as well as what caused the crash.
Our News of the Day, brought to you by the Indianapolis Speedrome and Circle City Raceway, is that Kurt Busch is going to miss his second straight Cup race due to concussion-like symptoms. Ty Gibbs will take his place once again. On one other NASCAR note, Kevin and Curt chat about the uncertainty of Kyle Busch’ future.
