    TPF indi Episode 50 -- California Dreamin’

    Tonight, we sift through the rubble after the mayhem that went down at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Alexander Rossi, super aggressive in qualifying and super smooth during the race, dominated the weekend, but newcomers Ed Jones and Zach Veach also yield impressive results. Ryan Hunter-Reay has a race he’d rather forget, and Bourdais makes the pass of the decade. Lastly, we wish John “Bon voyage!” as he gets set to head to the Barber Motorsport Park for next weekend’s IndyCar and Mazda Road to Indy races.

    We’d also like to extend a warm welcome to photographer extraordinaire, the Reverend of the Church of All Things Racy Goodness, Scott James. Scott joins us as our West Coast photographer and will be at Sonoma for us this year, and we thank him for his willingness to share his amazing talent with us.

    TPF indi Episode 49 -- The Phoenix Recap

    Tonight, we look at the winners and losers from the Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix Grand Prix. There were a lot of questions headed into this weekend. How did the new universal aero kit do? How did the rookies fare in what for many of them was their first oval race? Did anyone show up to watch?

    We also look forward to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach this coming weekend, the second race in a three-week stretch of back-to-back racing.

    TPF indi Episode 48 -- Phoenix

    Tonight, we take a look back at the testing results from the IMS Road Course, and why the Oval Test was postponed. Familiar faces are coming back to the IndyCar circus as Reynard begins experimenting with the new universal aero kit, and Jay Howard announces that he’s back with Schmidt Peterson for the 500.

    The Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix Grand Prix is this weekend, and we speculate on how the 2018 iteration of the DW12 will perform during its first oval race.

    TPF Indi Episode 47 -- MRTI Heroes and Zeros at St. Pete

    Tonight we’re going to cover the Mazda Road to Indy! All three rungs were at St. Petersburg and each had two races: USF2000, Pro Mazda, and Indy Lights. There’s a whole bunch of new faces in all three branches and we also see several drivers graduating from one rung to the next. The Mazda Road to Indy is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do, graduating drivers from one level to the next on their way to the IndyCar series.

    We also talk about Simon Pagenaud’s retirement plans, the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, and the recently announced 2019 broadcast deal. On balance it sounds like a great move for IndyCar, but a lot of questions still remain about the practice and qualifying sessions coverage, and the international deal is yet to be finalized.

    TPF Indi Episode 46 -- It Came In Like A Wrecking Ball

    Wow! St. Pete is behind us and we’re still going on about who hit who. What’s done is done, and there’s nothing left but to pontificate wildly about what is, what was, and what could have been.
