How Scott Dixon pulled off a win from crashing on the first lap and the restart of the Alex Palou/Ganassi/McLaren fight headline this The Race IndyCar Podcast episode.

There are only so many ways drivers can save fuel and yet Dixon is the absolute master, combining that with brilliant tyre management to shock everyone and deny Graham Rahal victory on the Indianapolis road course.

JR Hildebrand gives you a behind-the-visor look at how and why Dixon’s so impressive in these scenarios.

Is Rahal underappreciated or underrated? The hosts debate that looking at his six years without a pole or win, the former being broken this weekend, and also examine Josef Newgarden’s title chances after his nightmare weekend.

Finally the blockbuster news that Zak Brown claims Alex Palou has gone back on an alleged contract with the McLaren team and won’t race for it in 2024, and the chaos that ensued in the aftermath, is well covered.

We answer how and why this has all happened, some of the reasons behind it, and what might be next for McLaren which seemingly needs to find a new elite driver ASAP.
