BIG changes brewing in IMSA and WEC when it comes to driver rankings, and it all could mean some interesting choices to be made by teams and drivers over the next few years. Classes going away, new classes being added, and in the end, it may all come down to who has the deepest pockets to make it all work. Join Host Greg Creamer as he goes 1 on 1 with NBC Motorsports Analyst Calvin Fish in looking ahead to the not too distant future, and what IMSA is doing to step up their game and, in the process, force teams and drivers to do the exact same thing. In the annals of international motorsports, there may be no more engaging and incredible story than the rise of one person to legendary status in the world of LeMans. This is about more than just anyone, it’s the fascinating tale told by Leena Gade, as she rose thru the ranks at Audi to one day be placed in the position of having the world’s greatest endurance race, the 24 Hours of LeMans, right there for the taking. All she had to do was put aside those memories of almost being sacked to be in her seat on one day in 2011. Hear the tale from Gade herself in this engaging and engrossing tale of becoming the best there is at what she always wanted to do. Like any youngster, Andrew Davis dreamed of being an athlete, never losing sight of how one day he would be the man in the cockpit, touring around the circuits and heading for the checkered flag. Dreams that featured some of the true greats in road course racing, and all leading to that day where on of his heroes would be standing there, complimenting the kid who worshipped Hurley Haywood and that generation. Hear from the veteran IMSA driver and respected coach on how a chance meeting with Haywood changed everything. There’s a key to becoming one of the best there is at what you do. It’s all about being able to multitask, and in motorsports, that means starting young and mastering the toughest tracks, tooling in the fastest cars, and having the enthusiasm that would lead to the possibility of greatness. Meet Nolan Siegel, who already has set some eyes his way in the 2022 season, and his dreams of not only being a legend on the track, but in helping the RP Foundation raise awareness in the fight against this insidious autoimmune disease.
