FBC indi Episode 29 — Sato-san ga ichibandesu!

The rain held off and we turned a full 200 laps for the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. McLaren F1 driver Fernando Alonso stole the limelight most of the Month of May and Race Day was no exception, but other former Formula 1 drivers also had their moments including Alexander Rossi, Juan Pablo Montoya, Max Chilton who led more laps than any other driver, and of course Takuma Sato who led the most important lap of all. Three of these drivers with Formula 1 experience were on a team owned and operated by former Formula 1 driver, Michael Andretti. Let that sink in for a moment.

We dissect the race, discuss the potential fall-out of the Dixon-Howard incident and the Rookie of the Year controversy, and assess the championship points implications. We also take a look at this weekend’s Detroit Grand Prix. No rest for the weary.

I’d put Texas as the third largest, just because it has always been part of the IRL influence on the current IndyCar Series.

1) Indy 500
2) Long Beach
3) Texas Motor Speedway

You could make an argument for quite a few on third largest though, depends what you class as largest. Barber is a huge event in itself, Road America for tradition. I think TMS though.
