INDYCAR's "Fast Six" is a report derived from all things found online about Verizon IndyCar Series racing, its drivers and people. We seek and find pics and quips as INDYCAR drivers live their extraordinary lives and put the evidence on Twitter, Instagram and more. Check back regularly when we post the latest.
SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT
Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud and girlfriend Hailey McDermott showed up on the Los Angeles set of NBC's “The Voice” this week. Apparently, the show’s producers wanted him to feel at home so they gave him something to drive.
PARTY LIKE A … RACE CAR DRIVER
The sunsets are beautiful in Barbados and so are the vacation photos coming from Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver James Hinchcliffe and Andretti Autosport’s Marco Andretti, who are hanging out with friends and family, including rapper/actor Ludacris and movie producer Will Packer.
In more INDYCAR driver vacation news, Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon and his family are on extended luau in Hawaii. His snaps are making us cold.
Looks like another canine has joined the Verizon IndyCar Series family and Alexander Rossi of Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian is Brunner George’s “dad.” We can all follow the mini Goldendoodle at @fun.with.brunner on Instagram.
WILL DRIVE FOR RENT
Conor Daly is getting a little help from his friends, and a little ribbing as well, as he searches for a 2018 ride in the Verizon IndyCar Series. Daly stays sometimes at Rossi's abode in Indianapolis after previously bunking at Hinchcliffe's place.
During an online celebrity question-and-answer session to help raise #GivingTuesday funds for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, a questioner with the suspicious initials "CD" asked Rossi "which (INDYCAR) driver without a ride most deserves one, and why is it Conor Daly?" To which Rossi coyly replied, "Conor. Because his rent is due." It sent Daly to Twitter to express his concern about future living arrangements.
While the drivers take the offseason off, Max Chilton’s newlywed wife, Chloe, is working on taking the art world by one storm cloud at a time.
