The fastest Indianapolis 500 pole winner ever Scott Dixon joins this episode of The Race IndyCar Podcast to recap his stunning qualifying run.

Chip Ganassi Racing driver Dixon breaks down the feeling behind the wheel going 243mph, how he knew the pole laps would be fast and what he did after the day was done, which included Taco Bell.

He also discusses the challenges of the first half of the season, having five poles but only one win at the 500, and how he feels about the Ganassi team's chances after having four of its five entries making the Fast Six for pole.

JR Hildebrand is also on deck to discuss the wider qualifying picture with host Jack Benyon together in person for the first time, looking at the new qualifying format and some of the teams that missed the mark and start far back in what has been a track-position race in recent years.
