Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about whether they would rather take their family on a cross-country trip in America or somewhere else. They got inspired from this week’s guest, IndyCar driver, Alex Lloyd, who took his family on a cross-country trip through the United States.
Born and raised in England, Alex Lloyd began racing karts at the age of nine. His success in Europe was rewarded in 2004 when he tested with legendary Formula One racing team McLaren Mercedes. Later on Alex and his family moved to the U.S. to continue his career in racing.
Alex won the 2007 Firestone Indy Lights Championship. That same year Alex finished outside of the top five just three times and he won a total of eight races, including the first five of the season. In 2010, Alex competed in his first full season in the IZOD IndyCar Series, finished fourth in the Indy 500 and won the IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year Award.
The guys chat with Alex about racing, fatherhood, and more.
