The 2023 Indianapolis 500 winner Josef Newgarden joins us on this week’s The Race IndyCar Podcast.
The Team Penske driver talks about the weight the triumph had lifted off his shoulders after being held to a high standard and the expectation he should win the 500.
After two years with two new engineers and personnel moving around, he discusses what it was like to prove they were capable all along, and also addresses his newborn son’s impact on his life and how having a child has helped him to prioritise his time and become more focussed.
Of course, he also gives an in-the-helmet breakdown of the last restart and how he made the winning move that gave him victory by less than a tenth of a second.
Co-hosts Jack Benyon and JR Hildebrand assess the controversial red flag at the end of the race, as well as Pato O’Ward and Marcus Ericsson’s crash, and run through the field to pick out the other most interesting storylines.
