When in Paris …
Frenchman Simon Pagenaud is well known for his European style, so the perfectly-tied scarf around on the Team Penske driver’s beloved Jack Russell Terrier on their trip to Paris is no holiday surprise.
Everything is better with unicorn headphones
Looks like Chip Ganassi Racing driver Scott Dixon and family created onboard holiday magic on their trip to the five-time INDYCAR champion’s native country of New Zealand. We’re not sure where Tilly, the youngest Dixon daughter, got those unicorn headphones but we are sure they’re charmed. We’re also certain there’s never been a more adorable flight attendant on Air New Zealand than Tilly’s older sister Poppy.
Third time’s a (#DWTS) charm?
James Hinchcliffe, INDYCAR’s most recent “Dancing with the Stars” alum, has long been pressuring Team Penske driver Josef Newgarden to lace up his own dancing shoes. Judging from their recent social media exchange, Hinch might be getting somewhere.
If Josef goes for it, he’d be the third INDYCAR driver to compete behind two podium finishes – Helio Castroneves won Season 5 in 2007 and Hinchcliffe came in runner-up on Season 23 in 2016.

We love this holiday snap of Andretti Autosport’s Marco Andretti and his pal, Jeezy, living their best lives.
Taking a pounding

Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver James Hinchcliffe offered team-building inspiration this week, when he answered broadcaster Jackie Redmond’s question, “What did sports teach you this year?”
We’re passing it on today as a bit of Wednesday wisdom.
