Juan Pablo Montoya (left) and Kurt Busch (right) are the only drivers who can say they competed both in the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this year.
This week on RaceDay on FOX Sports Radio, Rob D’Amico get you on the grid for this weekend’s racing action.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup series is at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400, where the points leader Jeff Gordon looks to one-up his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson. Both are going for a record fifth win at the track.
One guy you can’t leave off the list of possible contenders is hometown favorite Tony Stewart, who has the best average finish of 6.8 at Indy and how about Kyle Busch, who is third on that list with an 11.6 average finish?
Speaking of Kyle Busch, the last time his oldest brother Kurt ran at Indy he finished sixth and was the rookie of the year for the Indy 500. Other drivers in the field who bring Indy 500 experience are Danica Patrick and Juan Pablo Montoya, who will join us on the show in the Honda INDYCAR Report.
IndyCar is off this weekend, but there is plenty of open-wheel action with Formula One heading to Budapest for the Hungarian GP where Nico Rosberg is on the pole and continues his quest for his first championship. Rosberg’s teammate, Lewis Hamliton, starts on the last row and will have to work his way through the field if he still wants a chance at the championship.
The NHRA is on their second stop of the western swing in Sonoma where top fuel driver Antron Brown, who already has five wins in 2014 and scored three wins at Sonoma between 2009 and 2012, looks to be one of the favorites. In funny car its hard to bet against Ron Capps with three wins in the last four years but John Force is running well rightnow and could be a factor.
We’ll take your calls on all the hot topics and discuss if NASCAR should bring Nationwide and the Sprint Cup to race at Eldora. Track owner Tony Stewart thinks so. Me? Not so much!
