“We have a new radio station this year picking up the race next weekend,” said Chris Pollock, Director of the IMS Radio Network/INDYCAR Radio Network. “We are excited to partner with KFNS 590 AM ‘The Fan’ to carry the Bommarito 500 locally in the St. Louis area.”

KFNS-AM is an all-sports station, featuring shows like “The Charlie ‘Tuna’ Show” featuring Charlie Edwards, “The Hollywood Casino Pressbox with Frank Cusumano,” and “Hot Take Central” (with Charlie Marlow, Cam Janssen, and Jim Hayes), to name a few.
