LONG BEACH, Calif. - You’ve seen the NBC Sports Group original digital series Paddock Pass for Formula 1, where Will Buxton goes to those paddocks on race weekends for more information, interviews and insight.
This weekend, NBC Sports Group premieres a variant for the Verizon IndyCar Series, IndyCar Paddock Pass, hosted by Anders Krohn.
Krohn, known as “The Viking,” has carved out a successful post-driving business career as co-owner of CoForce in Indianapolis, and has been a member of the NBC Sports broadcast team since 2014 as color analyst for Indy Lights race telecasts alongside Kevin Lee. Krohn will also work selected IndyCar races this year in the pit lane.
Krohn catches up with St. Petersburg winners Sebastien Bourdais and Dale Coyne, NAPA Auto Parts-sponsored Ron Capps and Alexander Rossi (Andretti-Herta Autosport) and the Indy Lights dynamic duo from Andretti-Steinbrenner Racing, Colton Herta and George Michael Steinbrenner IV.
