1000-1. Those were the odds on Jack Miller last Thursday to win the Assen Grand Prix. But via some sort of miracle, in one of the most ridiculous MotoGP weekends ever, he took a restarted victory ahead of Marc Marquez and Scott Redding, MotoGP’s first Indpendent victory since Toni Elias at Estoril 2006. We review all of the madness at a very wet and dry Assen this past weekend, including Rossi’s fall, Lorenzo’s case of the “yips”, and the first weekend with three new winners since 2013 as Takagami Nakagami and Francisco Bagnaia also took wins in their respective classes, in ANOTHER Moto3 highlight reel finish!
We also took Road America for IndyCar, in their most attended race ever, as Will Power reminded us he’s still Will Power with a dominant victory ahead of a rampant Tony Kaanan, with Graham Rahal finishing 3rd. We also took over the Push-To-Pass and the fact it may be a little too overpowered in the context of the finish, and Conor Daly’s rotten luck returning with a suspension failure.
We also take some of your listener questions, talk more about Top Gear and Matt LeBlanc’s threat to quit over Chris Evans, and talk more about Bernie Ecclestone wanting to change the revenue scale for Formula 1… About time.
Oh, and Johnson’s back. That’s a thing. Enjoy the episode, and stay tuned, with a little luck, we got a BIG week coming for the Podcast to start July. Stay tuned…
