It's a new episode of The Week In IndyCar show, with questions submitted from fans via social media. Listener Q&A begins at the 23m05s mark in the episode. Among the items covered: "Why did Firestone implement a very short tire stint limit before they even turned a wheel in Texas? Why not wait and see if maybe they can make the window bigger after practice." "McLaren has been admirable in saying that there would still be a place for Robbie Wickens when he comes back, but is that a realistic prospect when they are running two full-time cars and have a list of part-timers already in mind for next year?" "Now that the Indy Lights season has been cancelled, could any of those teams use their budgets/sponsorship dollars to run a car at Indy or another IndyCar race? Could one of the bigger teams lease them one of their backup cars for a one off run somewhere?" "What can you tell us about software in IndyCar? I know it's a general question, but #mepersonally working in IT and you (I believe) having a CS background, I always wonder what type of off-the-shelf or in-house software they run. Bonus points for using as many technical terms and acronyms as possible."

It's a new episode of The Week In IndyCar show, with questions submitted from fans via social media. Among the items covered: "Ferrari is exploring joining IndyCar in 2022 when the new regulations kick in. What do you think this would look like? Do you see a scenario where they say, "we will join if we can build the exact displacement hybrid engine we want"? "We will join if we are allowed to develop our own chassis". Etc.? Surely this would make some other European manufacturers take another look at IndyCar as well?" "Hypothetically, if we only get a few races in and we can't finish the season, will IndyCar crown a champion for the 2020 season? Or will the season be extended to include the 2021 season for a 2020-2021 championship?" "Akin to what Porsche did with its 919 Evo at the Nurburgring and Spa, where they threw out the rule book and modified the car to go as fast as possible - what speeds could be achieved at IMS if an Indy Car team was able to modify a current Indy Car to go as fast as possible? "To what degree are IndyCar teams allowed to repair and maintain their engines without getting Chevy or Honda technical staff involved or sending the unit back to the supplier for repair?"

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.
