George Mack, the last African-American driver to compete in the NTT IndyCar Series, joins the Marshall Pruett Podcast for an in-depth episode of My Racing Life and Career.

The Los Angeles native authored one of the most improbable open-wheel stories of the century where, with the new 310 Racing team in 2002, he went straight from karting to the all-oval Indy Racing League...with no oval experience and no experience racing cars.

It's the story of a remarkable man, from a remarkable family, who had a single season 18 long years ago to demonstrate his potential while facing impossible odds.
