Anders “The Viking” Krohn
The career for “The Viking” has had a number of stops along the way. A championship driver in Europe he made his way to the Pro Mazda and Indy Lights. From driving he stepped into the broadcast booth with the IMS Radio Network for the IndyCar Series.
A result of his performance NBCSN took notice and made him a part of their broadcast team. With the loss of Formula 1 NBCSN had to make cuts and thus the newest member, Anders< lost his position. Having liked his work Mark Jaynes and the IMS Radio Network needed a driver analyst as Davey Hamilton was hired by Carlin Racing so they contacted Anders to take the assignment. He did so he has returned to the booth for the Network.
Andres also several years ago co-founded COFORCE which is a consulting and management company working with drivers and race teams. It is currently a fast growing company.
While Conor Daly was disappointed in losing out on the Verizon IndyCar Series’ version of musical chairs when he failed in his a bid for a full-time ride for 2018, he was smiling on Tuesday as he finally secured a ride for the 102nd Indianapolis 500.
It’s a Honda with Dale Coyne Racing that will be sponsored by the United States Air Force. Thom Burns Racing is listed as the partner on the team for the 26-year-old driver from Noblesville, Indiana, who will be attempting to start his fifth Indy 500.
“We’re very happy to have Conor Daly back with us for the Indy 500,” team owner Dale Coyne said. “Conor has done a great job for us in the past and we hope to continue that this year at IMS. We also very much look forward to working with Thom Burns Racing and we’re extremely pleased and honored to be partnered and representing the United States Air Force.”
See you Tuesday evening at McGilvery’s Speedway…
