In this Verizon IndyCar Series exclusive access, one of two shot this weekend at Road America along with Sebastien Bourdais, NBCSN IndyCar pit reporter Katie Hargitt has another quick-hitting interview with Mikhail Aleshin, who competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with SMP Racing in the LMP2 class in the No. 27 BR01 Nissan.
Aleshin has competed at Le Mans for a second consecutive year after making his debut in 2015.
In the rapid-fire segment, Hargitt talks to the “Mad Russian” about how Le Mans went and how much he enjoys playing a guitar in a rock band.
Aleshin drives the No. 7 SMP Racing Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, which is now back in red and blue colors this weekend after running in DOOM black and red colors the last five race weekends at Indianapolis, Detroit and Texas.
