Having qualified for this year’s Indianapolis 500, The Race IndyCar podcast co-host JR Hildebrand gives an insider’s view of the biggest storylines from qualifying and also how he prepares for the big race.

Joined by American Editor Jack Benyon, Hildebrand discusses the outstanding performances of pole winner Scott Dixon and top Chevrolet team Ed Carpenter Racing, while also looking at Will Power scraping through to qualify for the event, which included hitting the wall and still not on his astounding effort. There’s also an in-depth wider look at Penske’s struggles at the Speedway this year.

Hildebrand outlines what’s expected of a driver in the week leading up to the Indy 500 and some things to watch for in this year’s event, while the duo discuss the merits of Paretta Autosport’s ambition to bring women into motorsport with its maiden 500 entry this year.
