fil-vc-newgarden

We had the great pleasure of speaking with the 2011 Firestone Indy Lights Champion, Josef Newgarden. Josef speaks with us about his decision to transition from European racing, where he was very successful in Formula Ford and competed in the GP3 series and was offered a spot in the FIA Young Drivers Academy, to American open-wheel racing in the Firestone Indy Lights series with Sam Schmidt Motorsports. The 2011 season had its ups and downs for Newgarden, and he shares his thoughts of the very high moments such as his victory Indianapolis and how he made it through the tougher stretches. I hope you enjoy listening to his story as much as I did.
