Besides the IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights Series, the Pro Mazda Championship is also on the schedule for this weekend’s Milwaukee IndyFest.
NBC Sports Network production assistant Ashley Wilson takes a look at some of the contenders in the Pro Mazda series, primarily the Andretti Autosport pair of Matthew Brabham and Shelby Blackstock. The pair went 1-3 in the last race at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis last month and Brabham has won four of the first five races to start the season.
The Pro Mazda race is at 6 p.m. local time (CT) tonight.
