Erik and D.J. are back and recap the inaugural AFSP 200 charity race. We raised $1450, had a great night of racing, and gave away some awesome prizes! We also discuss Formula 1’s rejection of the Andretti Global entry and the tone deaf and arrogant statement released explaining why, and we finally kick off the rebranded iRacing IndyCar league now known as the Indy Racing World Series!
AFSP 200 Recap, F1 Rejects Andretti, iRacing IndyCar League Preview
First, we kick off the show this week by recapping the AFSP 200 charity race for the @AFSPNational on @ApexRacingTV last Saturday night. It was a fantastic event with 23 very talented drivers (plus D.J.) competing and put on a great show for 100 laps around Michigan International Speedway! In the end we raised $1450 for the AFSP, gave away some awesome prizes, and overall had a great night! Thank you to all who donated, participated in the race, or just tuned in to watch! We will be back again next year!
Next, we turn our attention to breaking news out of Formula 1 where it was announced that the Andretti Global team led by Michael Andretti will not be joining Formula 1 in 2025 or 2026 because of well.. reasons. We talk about the tone-deaf and arrogant statement released outlining why they were rejected and our thoughts.
Finally, we move on and talk about how Behind Closed Doors has become the Indy Racing World Series and it kicks off February 20th at Chicagoland Speedway! We’ll be running a 10 race broadcasted season on @stadiumscene. Entry fee is a $10 broadcast fee. Learn more and sign up here.
