James Hinchcliffe

Filming a commercial can be tedious for the actors or, in this case, race car driver. James Hinchcliffe of Andretti Autosport makes the most of his time behind the wheel of the No. 27 GoDaddy.com car -- while it's parked in the shop.

Catch Hinchcliffe, who finished third in the Milwaukee IndyFest last year and is a two-time race winner this season, at The Milwaukee Mile this weekend. Also, he'll join Indianapolis 500 pole sitter Ed Carpenter and Long Beach race winner Takuma Sato at the Miller Time Pub & Grill (509 W. Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee) from 5-7 p.m. (local time) June 12 as they learn some of the art of bartending.

The next night, IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights drivers will be on hand at the Milwaukee IndyFest Street Party presented by Marcus Hotels & Resorts.

The family-friendly event on Wisconsin Avenue (between 4th and 5th Streets) from 5-10 p.m. features a pit stop challenge, a driver autograph session, classic car show, inflatables for youngsters to bounce the night away and live music.
