New six-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon calls in to discuss his incredible achievement, the hardships that were overcome late in the season with the No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda program, the team behind him, and the respect--and rivalry--he and 2019 champion Josef Newgarden have developed in recent years.

It's Part 2 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we prepare for the season file using listener-driven questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the submissions: "With the condensed offseason due to Covid, is there more pressure on teams to have a solid season finale to help kickstart their 2021 campaigns? I’m sure there’s still a great deal of silliness left in this offseason, but do you see anything results wise to truly affect seat movement for 2021 with the finale?" "How close are we to a Scott McLaughlin deal being announced? His reaction after Bathurst seemed to suggest he's pretty confident of a full season next year in IndyCar." "Lately we've been hearing about some drivers burning off the rears too quickly. Herta in particular, but others as well. I assume some of this is the diff settings on non-ovals. What else enters into it?" "What will be series biggest priority in the offseason? Third engine supplier? Updated rules package for next season especially on aeroscreen? Potential chassis remake? Attempt to add more ovals tracks in 2022 to even Roger buying one?" Subscribe: https://marshallpruettpodcast.com/subscribe Join our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/MarshallPruettPodcast
It's Part 1 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we prepare for the season file using listener-driven questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the submissions: "What do we believe came first. A handshake agreement between McLaren and Rosenqvist or the article on Oliver Askew?" "Who is in line for the Rosenqvist seat at Ganassi? Is that going to be Jimmie Johnson's part-time effort now?" "I was brought to the sport when Felix Rosenqvist came over from formula E. Now with António Félix de Costa testing with RLL in November what do you think are the odds he'll make the switch to IndyCar soon?" "If the IMS Museum decided to give you one of the cars in their collection, which would you pick and why? Thanks!"

Chip Ganassi Racing managing director Mike Hull pays a visit to The Week In IndyCar ahead of Sunday's season finale where his driver Scott Dixon leads the championship. Hull, in his familiar style, answers a variety of fun and insightful questions submitted by fans via social media. A sampling of the items posed this week: "Did Felix have to go to make way for Jimmie?" "Mike, how much of your notes and prep work that you put in for the original March race date for St. Pete will remain relevant for this weekend?" "Mike, please tell us any and everything about Jimmie Johnson coming to CGR." "I know Dixon is the Ice Man but St Pete and him seem to have more unpleasant memories than good ones. Is there any extra talking up or motivation you or the team have given him this week?"

Ed Carpenter Racing's Rinus VeeKay returns to The Week In IndyCar show after capturing his first podium in the No. 21 Chevy, and answers a variety of fun and insightful questions submitted by fans via social media. A sampling of the items posed this week: "Have you signed anything yet for next year?" "I’m curious if Ed Carpenter has introduced you to the fine American cuisine at places like the Mug-N-Bun or Charlie Brown’s restaurant?" "Rinus, when did you come up with the pose (turning around and 👉) you did during the drivers intro for the Indy 500?"

It's Part 1 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we dive into a bunch of questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the items posed this week: "Do you have any more details on the Askew situation? Was Oliver's contract a multi-year and he is being fired, or are they choosing to not resign him? Externally it is looking like Arrow or AMSP has some thin skin. Two drivers fired in two years for things they didn't like. The whole thing seems like a mess." "Do you believe that there will be a third OEM in IndyCar for the 2023 season when the new engine/chassis specs hit the track?" "MP, the announcement of Indy Lights returning next year was huge sigh of relief, and I really like the aspect of the top 3 championship finishers testing in IndyCar at the end of the year. This concept is definitely cool, but with the series current climate of more drivers than available seats, I don’t see a test doing much good moving many drivers up the ladder."

Following his win at the second Harvest Grand Prix race in the No. 12 Team Penske Verizon Chevy, Will Power returns to The Week In IndyCar show to answer a variety of fun and insightful questions submitted by fans via social media. A sampling of the items posed this week: "Out of all your Penske teammates in the last decade and a bit, who would you say has been the toughest to beat?" "Will, how did you feel when iRacing muted you on the All Teams chat? You were so funny to listen to." "Mr. Power, would you rather be chasing someone down in closing laps for the win, or managing a healthy lead like you did on Saturday? What’s the hardest part from a driver perspective about leading so much of a race?" "You can pick one piece of music for Colton Herta to play on the drums.

It's Part 2 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we dive into a bunch of questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the items posed this week: "More on the Leaders Circle $1m please. How do the three teams approach St. Pete? Marco has to be aggressive, take strategy risks, but do Foyt and ECR play it safe? Especially ECR. Do they bolt on a 'safe' setup so the car isn't a handful, pit early in the windows, and tell Conor to just bring it home?" "Does Scott Dixion wish the season ended on road course or oval vs street course? Understand it's his championship to lose but I feel Newgarden will have the advantage. As he has two killers for teammates vs Dixon has hit or miss Felix and Ericsson hasn't been strong at all to help. Couple with Dixon unusual qualifying slumps last few rounds could lead him starting mid-pack. Which means he could be in #dangerzone in concrete canyons. Your thoughts?" "Couple weeks ago you mentioned Juan Montoya had talked to a couple teams about returning to IndyCar, do you have anymore news on that front? Do you happen to know if its for a full time or part time ride, and whats you opinion on what team(s) you think he'd be a good fit for?"

It's Part 1 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we dive into a bunch of questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the items posed this week: "The new schedule to me is very lackluster. I feel like IndyCar should be expanding into new markets, similar to what the new NASCAR schedule is doing, instead they have a shrinking amount of ovals. Could IndyCar maybe purchase an Iowa or a Kentucky or a Chicagoland and invest in those tracks' future? Or is this an ignorant thought?" "What would you grade the replacement’s (Bourdais, Castroneves, and Hinch) performance this weekend? Do you think Helio and Hinch did well enough to earn a job next year?" "It is not my place to tell teams what they should spend money on but with the hard date for new engines + KERS in 2023, wouldn't that be the lowest cost time to switch to a new chassis instead of reworking the stock of existing chassis to fit the new engine package only to scrap them a few years later anyway?" "Do long, smoky NHRA-style burnouts leaving the pits hurt tire life through the stint? When the the driver complains about the rears losing grip I think 'should have taken better care the first 3 seconds you had ‘em.'"

It's Part 2 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we dive into a bunch of questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the items posed this week: "It's safe to assume that Oliver Askew has been racing with concussion related injuries since the Indy 500. Does him not telling his team now put him in bad light with the team? Should he have been more upfront about his injuries?" "AMSP, CGR, and Penske are all currently projecting an additional entry in 2021. How many do you think end up happening for a full season?" "Looking to next year, are there any technical changes to the cars?" Subscribe: https://marshallpruettpodcast.com/subscribe Join our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/MarshallPruettPodcast
Ahead of his first race for A.J. Foyt in the No. 14 Chevy, Sebastien Bourdais returns to The Week In IndyCar show to discuss the challenge ahead, sports car racing, and a variety of other goodies, all powered by questions submitted by fans via social media. A sampling of the items posed this week: "Seb-whats your focus for the rest of the year finishing the season strong as opposed to kicking off next year with the same team?" "What are some of the biggest hurdles of driving a GT car one week, DPi after that, and an Indy car the next?" "Seb any chance you'll be part of a French Hypercar or lMDh effort at Le Mans? Or isn't that compatible with your Foyt campaign?" Subscribe: https://marshallpruettpodcast.com/subscribe Join our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/MarshallPruettPodcast

It's Part 1 of the Week In IndyCar Listener Q&A show as we dive into a bunch of questions submitted via social media.  A sampling of the items posed this week (Q&A begins at the 2m40s mark in the episode): "What actually happened to Zach Veach? I doubt he willingly stepped aside for the rest of the year to help the team prepare for next season, he seems like a great guy, but I don’t think any racing driver no matter how nice they are would willingly do that. As a Canadian I’m very happy to see Hinch back in the car, what are his odds of being in that seat, or at least that organization for next season?" "Do you think that Sergio Perez could make the transition to IndyCar, now he has been replaced by Seb Vettel at Aston Martin in F1 #mepersonally he would fit in well at SPAM with Pato O'Ward and brings investment to the team." "Due to the lack of Indy Lights this year, do you think this will give the current crop drivers higher chance not being replaced, or will teams spend more time considering options from F1 / sports car championships?"

Push-to-pass should be secret otherwise shouldn't have it because it won't enhance the show.

if IndyCar ever guarantees spots in the field to teams I will no longer be a fan. Charter type systems is a losers mentality.
