November 23, 2021 Ep.188 – Scott McLaughlin

Ep.188 – Scott McLaughlin

Born in New Zealand and growing up in Australia, Scott McLaughlin made his name as the absolute stud of the Australian V8 Supercar series, but in 2021 made the bold move to come to the United States with a rare opportunity to drive in IndyCar with Team Penske. A champion in nearly everything he’s driven, the multi-time SuperCar winner is now the IndyCar rookie-of-the-year, who, thanks to marrying an American, has learned a lot about living stateside. Lunch was served at the North Harbor Club in Davidson, NC, with the song “Crash & Burn” by Vanra taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire, Acura, and Valvoline for making it all happen.

Ep.186 – Jon Ikeda

Jon Ikeda is a great one for us because he’s the boss’s boss’s boss at Acura. His current title is Brand Officer, but he’s more of a designer than a manager, but most importantly, he’s a racer. Yeah, he’s the boss, but we only chose to sit with him because he’s a character and a great storyteller and sheds a lot of light on just how it all works. Dinner was served at Saint & Second in Long Beach, CA, with the song “Future Hit” by Louis II taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire, Acura, and Valvoline for making it all happen.
