GMR Grand Prix Visit – GT Podcast

F-R Racing's Garage Talk Logo

D.J. and Erik are back with another episode of F-R Racing’s Garage Talk. We kick off the episode by discussing Erik’s visit to watch the IndyCar GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and sharing some IMS stories. We also talk about Ross Chastain, the return to North Wilkesboro, and a little Wednesday Night Dash at Laguna Seca.

GMR Grand Prix, Ross Chastain, The Return to North Wilkesboro

We kick off this week’s show by discussing Erik’s trip to the GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The discussion spins off to talking about being caught in rain storms at the motor speedway, hiding under the metal bleachers, and how looking back on that doesn’t look like the smartest place to hide from a thunderstorm. We get back on the discussion again on does IndyCar need more ovals on the schedule. If so, how can they do it safely and keep the racing entertaining?

We next move on and discuss Ross Chastain and the controversy with his aggressive driving. Is it good for the sport? Should the drivers be left to police themselves? We close out the segment talking about the upcoming Xfinity schedule and how it’s heavy on road courses/street circuits.

Finally, we close out by talking about our iRacing leagues (Behind Closed Doors and Wednesday Night Dash). We talked about why D.J. missed the BCD IndyCar race at Indianapolis on Tuesday and some of the struggles we faced racing Laguna Seca on Wednesday Night Dash in the GT3 cars. D.J. hypes his upcoming blog post about his experience with updating to Windows 11 on his gaming PC and how it has impacted the performance of iRacing. 

Be sure to enter our contest for a chance to win a free autographed diecast from Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Contest ends on June 28th.
