Fourth of July Weekend with Roger Penske, Josef Newgarden, Graham Rahal & Jimmie Johnson
Host Bruce Martin takes NTT INDYCAR SERIES fans behind the scenes from the big Fourth of July Weekend race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Josef Newgarden’s victory in the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on July 4 came on the 50thAnniversary of Team Penske’s first Indy car win when Mark Donohue drove to victory in the 1971 Schaefer 500 at Pocono Raceway. Martin has an exclusive interview with INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway Roger Penske, who also owns Team Penske, on this historic win.
Newgarden finally broke his streak of bad luck that had kept him from winning the previous two races. He started on the pole and led 73 of the 80 laps in the race to score career victory No. 19. Martin interviews Newgarden after the race.
Ohio’s own Graham Rahal and seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and INDYCAR rookie Jimmie Johnson also drop in for quick interviews with Martin on this week’s edition of Pit Pass Indy.
In the world of racing, "Penske" means performance ... and winning. For good reason. Since 1966, Team Penske has won 43 national championships, 17 IndyCar alone. Those are results that are tough to top.
