Tonight on Trackside, Kevin Lee and Curt Cavin open the show talking about possible scenarios next weekend at Laguna Seca and where Portland left the championship standings. They discuss Scott McLaughlin’s performance and his quick rise into contention in IndyCar. Kevin and Curt also discuss the level of driving and how it led to a clean race at a place that usually sees a lot of cars off the track. To round out the Portland conversation, they discuss the rest of the grid including Scott Dixon’s third place finish.

Our News of the Day, brought to you by the Indianapolis Speedrome and Circle City Raceway, is a Road to Indy recap from this weekend’s action in USF2000, Indy Pro 2000 and Indy Lights.

In the second hour, Kevin starts the second half of the show with Twitter questions from the audience. Then, Silly Season is the topic of conversation headlined by Colton Herta and the possibility of him having a seat in the Formula 1 grid in 2023. Kevin goes deeper into why American drivers are valuable in F1 and why a successful IndyCar driver in F1 might not be the best thing. Then, we discuss who might get the third seat for Arrow McLaren SP next year and more 2023 lineup possibilities.

To round out the show, sports car driver Jon Morley joins the program to discuss Race for RP, a charity focused on autoimmune disease, and an iRacing event to raise money for the foundation. Kevin and Jon talk about how he got involved with the foundation and the journey to an event as big as this eRace. The conversation concludes with the drivers Jon raced against in the early stages of his career.
