Katie Hargitt is the IndyCar Series as a pit reporter on NBCSN. If anybody qualified to be a pit reporter it would be Katie. She’s attractive, smart, personable and a former race car driver.

Katie interviewing Josef Newgarden, one of Indy Cars’ top drivers and talking to Mario Andrettinbc_indy_rapidfire_17070814272166_142812116174315_2121450213_n

Katie began racing quarter midgets at nine years old.Hargitt_sub1-300x241  From 2001 to 2008 she attended Lyn St. James’ Women in the Winner’s Circle and St. James’ Driver Development in 2005 and 2006. She eventually moved on to Kenyon and Ford Focus midgets with USAC.  From the moment she started winning races, the sport took hold of her.  Racing became not just a hobby, but an addiction.  After driving for 11 years, she steered her goal towards reporting.

Since leaving the driver’s seat Hargitt has hosted “Kickin’ it with Katie” during USAC’s 2012 Indiana Sprint Week and was a pit reporter for D1 Mopar midgets with USAC at the Indianapolis Speedrome in 2011.

During the summers of 2011 and 2012, Katie interned with the sports department at Fox 59 helping write scripts, edit packages, and interview. In 2012, Hargitt had the opportunity to begin traveling the NASCAR circuit with ESPN as a runner. In 2013, Kaie reported from the pits for the IZOD IndyCar series season opener at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of St. Pete with IndyCar Radio.
In May 2013, Katie graduated from Ball State University with a dual degree in Telecommunications and Journalism.14482774_1800556206825137_2152082956678594560_n

She now lives out her dream traveling with the Verizon IndyCar Series as a pit reporter for both IndyCar and IndyLights on NBCSN. She also produces and hosts a web show, #UpToSpeed, on and serves as a member of the public address team at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Her signature move is “Rapid Fire With Katie”. She is able to get one of the significant drivers and shoots questions at them for two minutes. Rapid Fire With Katie and Tony Kanaan:

If the Pit Reporter gig doesn’t work out I think Katie should enter the American Ninja Warrior competition.10369339_960216144027998_1904708214_n


When It’s time to have fun it looks like Katie may be in a league of her own.
