Open Wheel Open Mic: Super Max, Super License

Trialing a longer format for Open Wheel Open Mic, Fronstretch’s Michael Finley joins host Jack Swansey to break down Red Bull’s domination of Formula One, explain the difference between IndyCar and F1, and speculate wildly about Silly Season across three different racing series.

They trace the career of F1-turned-NASCAR-turned-Global-Rallycross racer Scott Speed, tally up Chase Elliott‘s FIA Superlicense points, and pontificate on the pop-cultural omnipresence of Mario Andretti.

Sign up for Open Wheel Open Mic on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, or check out Frontstretch on Tuesday for some of that international racing flair.

Looking for some open-wheel action on the racetrack? F1’s Dutch Grand Prix airs at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 4 on ESPN, while the NTT IndyCar Series’ Grand Prix of Portland airs 3 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock later that same day.
