The Race IndyCar Podcast is back as the championship’s hotly anticipated new-season kicked off with drama aplenty last weekend at St Petersburg.

Whether it was falling out of his car in victory lane, doing a shoey or tearfully praising his parents who he hasn’t seen since January 2020, Team Penske's Scott McLaughlin was an endearing maiden winner and forms the crux of the podcast.

Overcoming an eventful rookie year and the gravity of his achievement coming from tin-tops to one of the world’s most hotly competitive racing championships is all covered by self-labelled ‘Mr Driver Man’ JR Hildebrand and his co-host from The Race, Jack Benyon.

The duo outline the key talking points of the race, including struggles-to-redemption for Ganassi and its champions Scott Dixon and Alex Palou, the “best ninth place I’ve ever seen” for Marcus Ericsson and Arrow McLaren SP’s weekend of disappointment after an off-season of promise.

A contentious rule that played a role in Romain Grosjean’s practice crash on his Andretti debut and his team-mate Alexander Rossi’s poor start to the season also make the cut for debate.
