2023 Indy 500 Qualifying – GT Podcast

F-R Racing's Garage Talk Logo

Erik and D.J. are back. D.J. was violently ill over the weekend but had a chance to watch and try to digest everything that happened during the 2023 Indy 500 qualifying weekend.

Indy 500 Qualifying Drama, RLL and Graham Rahal, North Wilkesboro, and WND at VIR

Indy 500 qualification was full of drama, successes, and failures. You either had a great weekend or an absolutely horrible weekend. There was no middle ground. One of the teams that had the worst weekends was Rahal Letterman Lanigan (RLL) which ultimately resulted in Graham Rahal missing the field….or did he? We break down the weekend in qualifying and how exciting it was.

We touch on NASCAR’s return to North Wilkesboro with a largely boring race, drama involving Bubba Wallace’s radio, and Kyle Larson dominating the weekend. We also briefly touch on this weekend’s Formula 1 heading to Monaco and how likely it’s going to be another snoozefest. 

We close out the episode previewing our upcoming watch-along live stream starting Sunday morning at 9 am Eastern for the Monaco Grand Prix as we go directly into the Indy 500! Be sure to tune in for that. We do briefly touch on Wednesday Night Dash at VIRginia International Raceway and how the track swallowed everyone alive except for race winner, Ian Miller.

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