IndyCar Series Driver Grant Richey Stops by NESN Headquarters to Discuss Uniqueness of Sport, Take Employees for Quick Spin


IndyCar racing continues to grow and it will soon be returning to Loudon, N.H., for the first time since 1998. But before doing so, driver Grant Richey brought a two-seater IZOD car by the NESN headquarters to give some employees a quick spin around the parking lot.

NESN's Jayme Parker caught up with Richey to learn a little more about the IndyCar Series. Richey said that in addition to some obvious differences in looks and sounds between NASCAR cars and IndyCar Series cars, IndyCar Series cars require a bit more precision since slight bumps can easily send a driver into the wall.

IndyCar Series cars are also much lighter than NASCAR cars and often travel at speeds above 200 mph. IndyCar racing will return to Loudon on Aug. 14.
