36: If You Ain’t First, Try Last


Sebastien Bourdais’ remarkable last-to-first drive on the streets of St. Petersburg this past weekend to open the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season takes center stage on The Apex’s official podcast this week.

On Episode 36 of The Braking Point, which was recorded as Editor-in-Chief Aaron Durant’s 18th birthday arrived, The Apex’s leaders go in depth on every race that took place during the St. Petersburg weekend — from all four Pirelli World Challenge races to the six exciting Mazda Road to Indy contests.

Then, Executive Editor Ben Hinc aids Durant in going over each IndyCar session of the weekend. From Practice 1 to the Firestone Fast 6 to the 110-lap race, it was an intriguing weekend that didn’t fail to surprise at every opportunity it got.

A preview of this weekend’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship serves as the in-depth topic on Episode 36.
