With a break between races, Firestone Indy Lights drivers spent their off week in various ways -- training, bonding and even having some goofy fun.
Belardi Auto Racing's Peter Dempsey and IZOD IndyCar Series driver Simona de Silvestro dressed up in something other than their firesuits at Medieval Times in Chicago with Dempsey's girlfriend Mandy and her family.
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports teammates Jack Hawksworth and Sage Karam took the team's winning ways off the track at the Rock The Relay marathon in downtown Indianapolis benefiting the "Back on My Feet" project, which lends help to the homeless and under-served population. Joining them for the victory was Hawksworth's engineer, Tim Neff. Hawksworth moved to the city this past winter, while Karam just recently relocated to the Racing Capital of the World.
Legacy Indy Lights 100 winner Carlos Munoz also kept himself busy over the break in his adopted hometown of Miami. "Back to work, morning menu 45k bike 9k running," he tweeted.
Drivers are back on the track April 19 for practice on the streets of Long Beach, Calif., for the race April 21.
