FBC indi Episode #21 — Long Beach Preview

Tonight, we take a look at the artist illustration of the 2018 Indycar aero kit, which has emerged in recent days, and look ahead to this weekend’s upcoming Long Beach Grand Prix.

We also take a look at the Mazda Road to Indy Races that opened the 2017 seasons for the USF2000, Pro Mazda, and Indy Lights Championships.  All three series offered great racing and the USF2000 series debuted it’s new USF17 Tatus chassis.
