He won 24 races in his driving career, most notably the 1986 Indianapolis 500.Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is also co-owned by former TV talk show host David Letterman and south side Chicago industrialist Michael Lanigan, a very interesting man in himself. Lanigan owns the Panama Canal Railroad outright. Enjoy our interview with him, also from February 19th, as he discusses his first Indianapolis 500 as a team owner.The Borg-Warner Trophy is one of the most iconic and famous trophies in all of the world. It's right up there with the Stanley Cup in terms of recognition. When people see that trophy, they instantly know that it’s for the Indy 500. It's been awarded since the mid-1930s and the next guest is Michelle Collins, the Global Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Borg-Warner. She shares a little bit about the trophy and what it means to her company to have such a longstanding relationship with one of the greatest sporting events in the world.The final interview on today's show is with Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles, who talks about how challenging 2020 was, trying to operate the facility during the COVID-19 pandemic. This meant that last year's Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400 NASCAR Weekend was held without spectators. Boles also talked about his hopes for the 2021 Indy 500, which will hopefully have spectators if the Indiana and Marion County officials allow it.Thank you for joining us today.
