NorCal IndyCar driver Alexander Rossi joined ESPN Radio host Dan Dakich to talk about his year so far and the upcoming Indianapolis 500.

Rossi started 18th in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama and used carefully planned strategy and strong pace to fight to the front in Sunday’s 90-lap race, ultimately finishing fifth. Rossi moved up more positions in the No. 98 Andretti Autosport/Curb Honda, start to finish, than any driver in the field.

The Verizon IndyCar Series field heads to the first oval race of the season this week, the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix at Phoenix Raceway. Practice and qualifying will be held Friday on the 1.022-mile oval, with the race airing live at 9 pm. ET Saturday on NBCSN and the Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network.

The 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 takes place on May 28th.
