The Making of a Racing Champion

What is it that makes a Racer a Champion ?

No matter what type of Racing, Champions always stand out. Not just because they are the Champ, but for a number of factors not usually seen by Auto Racing fans.

Scott Dixon 2013 IndyCar Champion

This Sidepods Podcast audio episode here on RaceRemote is from our audio vault.

This was recorded just before the Championship contenders headed to Auto Club Speedway in Southern California to battle it out, for the 2013 Championships.

We strive to do interviews that are timeless. So regardless of when you might listen to this – we think you will find some great words of wisdom for all involved in Motorsports.

We were able to spend some time with all four contenders.

We first asked the Mazda Road to Indy Veterans – what advice – if given the chance – they might seek from Scott Dixon and Helio Castroneves.

Then we asked both Scott and Helio what advice they might offer to both Chavez and Karam –Ā  both from the perspective as racers themselves, but also as past IndyLights competitors.

We hope you enjoy this episode of the SidePods Podcast here on RaceRemote.

Congratulations Champs – Scott Dixon and Sage Karam.

Roger Bailey and the Road to Indy

Roger Bailey is the Executive Director for the Firestone Indy Lights Series and someone known to many a young driver who have worked to make their living behind the wheel of a single-seater racing car.

Since we’ve had the pleasure of knowing Roger since the early 1990’s, we figured it was high time we sat Roger Bailey down to find out more about him personally, as well as the recently announced Road to Indy Program.

We were fortunate to sit Roger down, literally on the front tire of a race car at the recent PRI Show in Orlando.

Roger Bailey and the Road to Indy

There was a great deal of excitement around the launch of the Road to Indy Program. This upcoming Memorial Day weekend will be especially busy with all four series conducting racing events in Indianapolis during the course of the weekend.

The Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship powered by Mazda and Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear will be racing at O’Reilly Raceway Park at the Night Before the 500 event while the Firestone Indy Lights (Firestone Freedom 100) and IZOD IndyCar Series (Indianapolis 500) will race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
