Hurley Haywood, a five-time winner of the 24 Hours at Daytona and three-time LeMans winner, on his decision to come out; whether he could have done it during his racing career; why he kept his personal life a secret while racing professionally and whether his career would have ended if he chose to reveal it; if his sponsor Penthouse was aware of his sexuality; the dual impetus for choosing to come out; if other gay drivers have confided in him since then and sought advice on coming out; whether he thinks a major racing series would be accepting of a gay driver.

Sebastien Bourdais, three-time winner of the Long Beach Grand Prix on what the circuit has meant to his Champ Car and IndyCar career, his incredible three-wide pass in the 2018 Long Beach Grand Prix and how IndyCar is officiated; his outlook for 2019; and how it feels to race in his hometown of LeMans.
