The Honda Indy Grand Prix invades Wake Up Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Most mornings it takes a cup of coffee, an energy drink, or maybe a sugary treat to wake you up, but how about the roar of an Indy car engine to get you started? Stephen Hauck played backseat driver this morning with Jimmy Tyrie of the Indy Racing Experience to talk about some of the events going on this weekend.

Indy on Wake UpThe events kick off Friday at the Shops of Grand River, where you can strap into one of the cars. That starts at 5:30pm.

The race cars can go anywhere from 180-185 mph on courses like Barber’s, and all the way up to 230 mph on courses like Indianapolis.

And for the record, no eardrums were harmed in the shooting of this interview.
