PIT PASS INDY – EPISODE 27 – Featuring Jimmie Johnson, Roman Grosjean, team owner Michael Andretti, James Hinchcliffe and an exclusive interview with 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES Champion Alex Palou from the NASCAR race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

OCTOBER 12, 2021

Just a few days after Alex Palou received the awards and accolades as the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion, Jimmie Johnson and Romain Grosjean were on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval for the Rookie Orientation Program. The ROP is an important part of the Indianapolis 500 process as drivers who have never competed on the IMS oval must pass the three-phase, high-speed, on-track test.

Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin was there to interview Johnson and Grosjean and get their first impressions of preparing for the 106th Indianapolis 500 in 2022. Martin also interviews team owner Michael Andretti and driver James Hinchcliffe, who worked with Grosjean on the team’s radio during ROP.

This week’s feature interview is with 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Alex Palou, who attended his first NASCAR race this past Sunday at the BankofAmerica ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Show host Bruce Martin was there for this exclusive interview with Palou, who met both “The King” – NASCAR great Richard Petty – and “James Bond 007” – actor Daniel Craig, the honorary starter for the NASCAR race.
