INDIANAPOLIS -- Trackside 6 is welcoming a new team member ahead of the Indianapolis 500 – 8-year-old Landyn Shaw.

Shaw, who was born on the day of the Indianapolis 500 in 2007, showed off his track knowledge during last weekend's Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

"Whenever they race here at the world's best track, that's the best race you can ever see, you know," Shaw told RTV6.

Because of his enthusiasm and his race knowledge, we've decided to bring him onboard for our race coverage.

You can see more about Shaw in the video player above, and watch his special reports all day during the Indianapolis 500 on RTV6, online and in the mobile app.
