About this Episode

Robin Miller joins the Boss Hog of Liberty team for our first phone interview. Jeremiah Morrell, Dakota Davis, Danny Morrell, and Chris Spangle chat with Robin about local sports topics ranging from IHSAA basketball legend Marion Pierce, to New Castle Motor Sports Park being the first class racing gem of our community.

Robin is entering his 50th year of covering Indycar and championship racing, along with his career covering the Indianapolis Colts, Pacers, and IU Basketball. Robin tells us about how the Unser family couldn’t rent a car in the continental United States, how Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt are some of the greatest legends he covered.

We discuss Robin’s latest piece on Racer.com previewing the expected field for the Indy 500. Danica Patrick let the word slip that she is going to be at Ed Carpenter Racing for the 500. Robin highlights her success at Indianapolis and her chances for a great finish at this year’s race. Conor Daly is expected to have a ride with Dale Coyne Racing. No worries about having a field of 33 this year.

The guys are all going to take Dakota to his first Indy 500 experience this May. If you want to join them, jump on Indy500.com and get your tickets. Look for them in the turn 3 infield.
