In a jam-packed edition of The Race IndyCar Podcast, hosts Jack Benyon and IndyCar racer JR Hildebrand look back on a great weekend of action at the iconic Long Beach street course.

They discuss how Josef Newgarden was able to secure a second consecutive win for Penske, despite sustained late pressure from ex-F1 man Romain Grosjean, whose own performances for new team Andretti Autosport are also evaluated.

The team also give their thoughts on whether Colton Herta can rebound from another street course error, and cast an eye over reigning champion Alex Palou’s title defence - and absence from the headlines - so far.

And fresh from the race, California-native JR provides some colour from an enjoyable weekend in the paddock, including what makes Long Beach the storied and atmospheric event it is, and his view on ace rookie Kyle Kirkwood’s start after his top-10 finish.
