XM to kick off 4th year of Indy coverage

Danica Patrick

XM Satellite Radio is going into it's fourth year as the satellite radio provider for the Indy Racing League, with the first race of the IndyCar Series' 2008 season: the Indy 300.

As with prior years, the entire 2008 IndyCar Series season, including the Indianapolis 500 on May 25th, will be broadcast live on XM. The satellite radio provider will also air pre-race programming, interviews and commentary, as well as the live wheel-to-wheel action presented by the IMS Radio Network.

With the recent (re)unification of open-wheel racing - IRL and Champ Car are ending their 12-year civil war - the IndyCar Series will be expanding its schedule to 18 races. This will offer up a mix of short oval, super speedway and road/street events, making it the most diverse schedule in all of motorsports.

XM is also a major associate sponsor of the Andretti Green Racing's No. 7 Honda-powered Dallara driven by Danica Patrick (pictured above, in case you didn't guess).

The AGR team - featuring drivers Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti and Tony Kanaan as well as legend Michael Andretti - will also be launching their 2nd season of "The Andretti Green Racing Hour," starting in its weekly time slot on March 25th at 7pm ET on XM Sports Nation (ch 144).


Danica Patrick is HOT.

Nuff Said.

I don't think weekly Orbitcast items about Danica's XM show are too much to ask for.

Agreed. "This Week in Danica" should absolutely be a reoccurring segment.

Now we're talking about compelling programming. Come on Vernon - let's get some CMO mojo on this and make it a winning investment.

Is it just me, or are the "waves" in the XM logo on Danica's t-shirt further apart than normal? ;-)

Ryan, get Danica on Orbitcast Radio. She'd be a great guest!

Ryan when will this sexist talk stop? This is ridiculous!!!!!!! Its insulting to women and all human beings...... besides she has those side hangy boobs.

This spring there are different and interesting events. As I’m a NASCAR sport fan, I always feel entertained while watching races. Like Indianapolis event, that will take place in the end of May, is one of the hot NASCAR events and it is the greatest spectacle in racing. The race is highly attended this is what pushes ticket prices to be so high. I come to discover a site where to compare ticket prices before booking. At least this way one could look for the lowest prices.

Anyway, I hope I want miss my chance to attend because I’m witting impatiently.
