IndyCar’s latest race winner Kyle Kirkwood joins this week’s The Race IndyCar Podcast.

Andretti Autosport’s Long Beach victor had a best finish of 10th entering that race, but with a calm and assured drive in what was a complicated race, Kirkwood emerged victorious and reflects on the experience this week.

On the agenda, Kirkwood takes questions about his rollercoaster rise to the top, how he handled the criticism, pressure, expectation, and trying to lead a struggling AJ Foyt team last year.

He also breaks down what the switch to Andretti has done with the “sanity check” of having experienced team-mates to make sure he’s on the right path, doing a deep-dive into how he won at Long Beach and how leading and fighting for a win is easier than being in the mid-pack.

There’s also some off-piste questions about if Kirkwood has considered an F1 future, and if he could compete in any event or series, what would it be?

Don’t forget, if you have a question for our hosting team, you can email, text and/or send voice notes to be included on the podcast by sending them to podcasts@the-race.com.
