Give it to Rick to. Ate comet water polo team militant elements so when I walked around to go to this morning who has. Just telling them what it's like our great state gives me goosebumps that. It's so much fun this year that excitement and an owner that built in Indianapolis during the month the bank. I'm in the Indian now there the IndyCar Grand Prix you tend to finish fifth. Yeah I I have heard that recently gave. Poor concrete. I. Re there now. That's got to go get a top five like that. But like that. The at least the Olympic out of it this year what's the key to running well on this circuit. If that grit rooster and a lot of different. Elements to it got a full speed through that they're certainly not until well good breaks. In the turns seventeen deterrent on. But hopefully it'll be faster on the so there's a couple of really all certainly within a passing opportunities so. It is a little bit darker than her. Those you don't have to worry about human prompt and but at this point at each make the most of every chance he looked good. And then after the Grand Prix you have to get ready for the Indianapolis 500 you've been really good in the 504 top tens. In six starts what's the key to running well in the 500 mile race. Always all of a practice again you have to make sure that he put party tool in your tool box you ought to make sure that the caller. For all the weather conditions so he it's cloudy that would ensure that torture terrible question to all of those things. More time pitchers up or down change how long did it feel to how the track races. During practice as future. Weather conditions. You have to make sure that you're learning about the car and putting those two boxing. Well boy you get to race day you know you're ready to go. And for me. It's about being methodical and intelligent in how my it guy order true that we can practice. Through the weekend qualifying. And then what we have what we get to weekend. Tired of Charlie Campbell the driver of the Novo Nordisk number 8300 for Chip Ganassi racing. It can simulate that I have the simulators become. So it didn't detail oriented he can simulate wind conditions it is too busy running laps in the simulator to Indy. It's part this simulate the weather conditions frankly that is at the altar religion out she should throw for your. I noticed simulation each. Do a great job of looking at at your race there and wiggle goals. So what it feels like in the top that it is very solid and can be heard Eric. To replicate. From a computer site so it's something that just takes spirit and he keeps. It's still a little the rookie year that even your second or third year at the Indianapolis 500. It's that all elements that you learn the most about oh. As it is a guy who moved you don't like I said four top tens in six starts. We know the dead and that the key to running top tens is running at the end how do you stay away from trouble among the 33 cars. On that two and a half mile oval only is there is there a tactic or is it just blocked. Somebody who are excellent in New York pound on the bit just. Being hooked up to this special reports first quarter even harder and 4850. Laps. Building it to finish first you first must finish that thought on the Internet won't. Eat yet again a little more room where you have to give up that position earlier irony. But those last twenty laps. That's when the delegates turned out to attend and beyond because that's what it really out there and but it is going to play and what are the other drivers talked about the last trip me out there you let the racetrack they feel. How many of the other 32 guys do you think okay. Ed that guy's a knucklehead that deck has just gone crazy you know he's a bond side slit to the for a guy who wants to run to the first in the first twenty laps. I'm gonna stay the hell lot of guys might how many of the 33 guys are there who were like that. I think they're very few frankly I wanna be experienced good ones. Our circumstance that Specter early on. I mean honestly if you got a good first go to the front. And so when you have a good color just. Settle in your written and start won't buy any other callers wing Buchanan and making get me. Pretty innuendo Fatah and not speeches made any big presses her just because you have a good car underneath. How crucial. Is qualifying well. It's important but it's not the be all and all that somebody's sprint races. So slick roads streets and start to restart qualifier game. Oliver a key factor aren't where you finish. The front runner with 500 final. 456. Pit stops. There's a lot of opportunity to make your car better and keep moving up to your excellent track position race and that's further up front you can beat. Easier to cart arrives. The last opportunity you know we're good cast look trouble. But at the same time you've got a little bit at times could get there as well. Tired of Charlie Kimball the driver the number 83 Novo Nordisk chip can SE Honda. I'm Olivia skidded every time we talk TR I think rightfully so and I hope you don't get tired of the week talk about health. OK as a diabetic kids it's difficult to maintain like slew of levels and blood sugar levels and all that stuff. It end the right measure Andy I know you spent some time yesterday out a patent Manning Children's Hospital. EEE using your celebrity. To further that health. Of people in central Indiana and beyond how important is that to you. To me it it's really important I think K. It's nice. And it has some balance to your contract. And stuff because.

Inspired. Thinking and partner program Indianapolis motor with a and so that part after talking there. The Indiana blood center we know is facing a critical shortage and and that's one of the things that. That we wanna talking about the importance of donating blood and it sometimes it slips our minds. Today and we don't think about those in need but it's absolutely crucial that we do. Absolutely I could be looking more because it it definitely hit home. Especially in the month and named him he doesn't. Is that so many people going up the racetrack could erase from the current eighty. Incident patients who need to blood transfusions to just stay healthy and survive. It's critical that the Indianapolis putter has the stone her to be able to support. Those people vote takes care for. So I encourage people in if you can't donate blood and kicked out donate blood in and they're doing a really cool promotion. If you made an appointment.
