It is Indianapolis 500 qualifying this weekend, and while IndyCar has changed over the years the emotion around its premier race has not waned.
One man very familiar with what the teams will be thinking going into this weekend's battles both for pole and to avoid being 'bumped' is legendary Indy mechanic and fabricator Eamon 'Chalkie' Fullalove.
A career that began when he answered an Autosport advert placed by Team Lotus went on to involve Indy 500 wins with Mario Andretti and AJ Foyt, and even a hand in Buddy Lazier's victory in the contentious first 500 of the Indy Racing League era in 1996.
As tension builds at Indianapolis in 2019, Fullalove joins the Autosport podcast to reminisce about the very different eras he experienced at the famous Speedway, including McLaren's 1970s successes.
