IndyCar champion Will Power joined the NASCAR on NBC podcast in advance of the 101 running of the Indianapolis 500.

Power, who won the series title in 2014, is seventh in the standings after getting caught in a crash and finishing 23rd at the Indy 500.

The Team Penske driver discussed why he is in better shape than a year ago because of a new diet to alleviate food allergies, his tales of using Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s motorhome at Indy and the difficulty of finding a good game of squash in Charlotte.

The native Australian also talked about raising his newborn son in America and his comfort with becoming a more outspoken veteran in the series.
