Pit Pass Indy Partnership with World Wide Technology Raceway Gives Listeners Inside the Cockpit Access
Published: July 18, 2022
World Wide Technology Raceway has joined forces with Evergreen Podcasts’ Pit Pass Indy as it gears up for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES Bommarito Automotive Group 500 on August 20, 2020. The exciting partnership gives serious INDYCAR fans “Inside the garage” and “into the cockpit” access to the biggest names in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
“World Wide Technology Raceway’s support for the premier podcast for INDYCAR enthusiasts accelerates the experience because they can truly get behind the scenes of some of the most exciting moments in racing,” said David Allen Moss, Evergreen Podcasts’ Creative Director.
Pit Pass Indy hosted by longtime IndyCar journalist Bruce Martin is a podcast that takes INDYCAR fans into the garage and inside the cockpit. It features iconic teams like Arrow McLaren SP, Andretti Autosport, Team Penske and Chip Ganassi Racing, interviews with legendary drivers as Jimmie Johnson, Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves, and Will Power. Plus, the podcast talks to rising stars like Colton Herta, Pato O’Ward, Scott McLaughlin, Alex Palou, and others.
World Wide Technology Raceway kicks off a high-speed weekend on Friday, August 19, with the historic return of the United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Series. That’s 100 miles of open wheel champ car action under the lights for INDYCAR Pole Night.
The main event is on Saturday, August 20 with the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 NTT INDYCAR SERIES race.
“One of the highlights of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season is the annual Saturday Night Showdown,” said Pit Pass Indy Host Bruce Martin, an award-winning journalist with 40 years of experience covering INDYCAR and NASCAR with wit, humor, and an occasional snark. Martin has covered both INDYCAR and NASCAR for some of the biggest media companies including NBCSports.com, Forbes “SportsMoney,” SPEED SPORT, SI.com, FOXSports.com, ESPN.com, and ESPN Sports Ticker. Additionally, Martin’s work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, USA Today and many other newspapers and magazines.
“Under the leadership of Owner Curtis Francois and Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair at WWRT and John Bommarito of the Bommarito Automotive Group,, they have revived the short oval into one of the best tracks to watch the exciting action of high-speed INDYCAR racing,” Martin continued. “There is a term in the business when someone is a ‘Racer.’ That means they understand the sport and what makes it successful. Francois, Blair, and Bommarito are true Racers who understand the importance of treating competitors and fans in a first-class manner.”
In addition to the high-speed action of INDYCAR in the Bommarito Automotive Group 500, other action includes Indy Lights, Indy Pro 2000 Series, and Vintage Indy Registry. Fans can also take part in the “Rumble Before the Roar” with a D.J., tailgate games, and unlimited beverages. A Police and First Responder Parade on Saturday pays tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Illinois State Police with heritage cars from their collection. There is also Midway Entertainment, and expanded camping options. Fans can upgrade the experience with a Paddock Pass to get the closest access to the series’ cars and stars.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to enter into this partnership to help spread the word of INDYCAR, World Wide Technology Raceway, and the Bommarito Auto Group,” Martin said. “From racing legends such as Mario Andretti to future stars as Colton Herta, our guests and listeners help make Pit Pass Indy your path to Victory Lane in INDYCAR.”

Giving authors the opportunity to nerd out about things they love doing on their own time allows listeners to learn more about their favorite writers.
