March 25, 2014 — RaceChaser Online/Speed77 Radio audio — CHARLOTTE, NC — On last night’s Motorsports Madness, the antics got wilder, the news wider and the show larger than usual on a special two-hour edition where everything from the Sprint Cup Series at Fontana to interviews with two of Andretti Autosport’s rising stars to dirt track craziness and Dale Jr. potentially driving an IndyCar was discussed live on Speed77 Radio powered by Race Chaser Online.
Co-hosts Jacob Seelman, Tom Baker and Kyle Souza broke down the steamy weekend from Auto Club Speedway and the last lap drama that ensued twice over, including Kyle Larson’s breakthrough victory in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Kyle Busch’s comeback win in the Sprint Cup Series. The trio also took a look at Denny Hamlin’s health conundrum, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s potential seat-swap with Graham Rahal, and more as part of a double dose of NASCAR news and notes on the show!
Seelman sat down with young Andretti Autosport pilot Garett Grist to discuss his anticipation for that division’s season-opener this weekend on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, as well as to talk about his rise through the ranks of the Mazda Road to Indy and his experience with Andretti Autosport over the past year.
Open wheel insider Joel Sebastianelli sat down with the crew to preview both the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg to open the season for the Verizon IndyCar Series this weekend and the Malaysian Grand Prix, round two of the Formula One World Championship. Joel also discussed his views on the IndyCar Series’ new points system, JR Hildebrand’s appointment to the Indianapolis 500 with Ed Carpenter Racing, and young Sebastian Wheldon’s experience with the big guns during the IndyCar Media Kart Race last weekend.
Steven Ovens and Clint Miller rejoined the Roundtable from the Turn 5 Racing Podcast to discuss Kerry Madsen’s photo finish victory from Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track, preview this weekend’s California bonanza at Merced and Chico, and talk up the latest news from the northeast as well, with the Super DIRTcar season getting ready to heat up in a couple weeks’ time.
Shelby Blackstock joined the Roundtable to talk about his recent experiences with the IMSA Continental Sports Car Challenge and expectations for the 2014 Pro Mazda Series season after scoring his maiden IMSA victory at Daytona and returning to Andretti Autosport for another season behind the wheel at the storied open wheel program.
The crew even broke down all the weekend’s K&N Pro Series, AMA Supercross, and MotoGP action on a jam-packed and lightning-fast two hours of motorsports content!
