Work calendar reminder
While “non-racing” people might be getting ready for the holidays, Team Penske and Andretti Autosport kick off the Fast Six with an important calendar reminder.
So, with lots of work to be done and less than 90 days to go before the season opener, here are what some of INDYCAR drivers were up to this work week.
New man on the job
At a test at Sebring International Raceway, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports newcomer Marcus Ericsson got acquainted with his new office.
For 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series champ Scott Dixon and runner-up Alexander Rossi, it appears they haven’t stopped competing off track, as they both get to work early on 2019.
2018 Indy Lights champ Patricio O’Ward isn’t taking his work lightly as an incoming IndyCar Series rookie with Harding Steinbrenner Racing.
Jack Harvey is also getting to work now in the hopes that a win will be in the cards for Meyer Shank Racing with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports in 2019.
Team Penske’s 2016 IndyCar Series champ Simon Pagenaud reminds us that sometimes the right music can serve as motivation while you work.
Bring your child to work day
Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay took his 5-year-old son Ryden to the karting track. Both put in some good laps decked out with matching helmet designs.
A job well done
Last week, Team Penske’s Will Power got to see the fruits of his labor in the form of his likeness unveiled on the Borg-Warner Trophy – the latest honor for being winner of the 2018 Indianapolis 500.
It’s apparent if you follow Power’s Instagram stories that he has been a lot more “zen” since his Indy 500 win. Now it appears he is really embracing the idea of incorporating meditation into his work regimen. And he pities the fool that doesn’t.
All work and no play?
You have to step away from work sometimes to make time for fun, especially if it’s for a good cause. This is how INDYCAR drivers roll; Alexander Rossi, Charlie Kimball, Jack Harvey and Patricio O’Ward joined their NHRA drivers friends at Don Schumacher Racing for the annual Bowling For Riley event at Western Bowl in Indianapolis to benefit the Riley Children’s Foundation.
