More Power, Daddy, more Power!
Team Penske driver Will Power has documented a few moments in the life of his son, Beau, over the past few days. And we cannot get over how adorable they are.
Double Detroit dip
After winning Race 2 of the 2018 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear, Ryan Hunter-Reay decided to jump in the Scott Fountain on Belle Isle, where victory lane is located. With that dip in the water, Hunter-Reay apparently started a tradition as this year’s winners Josef Newgarden and Scott Dixon followed (wet) suit. Dixon even coerced his No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing crew to join him.
Kanaan to be on equal footing with his boss
Tony Kanaan is already known as the iron man of Indy car racing with his ongoing streak of 308 consecutive race starts the all-time record. The Brazilian is about to reach another milestone displaying his incredible longevity and durability.
In Saturday’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway, Kanaan will make his 369th overall Indy car start. It will equal his car owner, Indy car legend A.J. Foyt, for the second most all time. Kanaan talked about the feat.
NFL x INDYCAR in Detroit
Of the many cheering Dixon on to his victory Sunday was Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. The Super Bowl-winning head coach is a friend of Dixon’s car owner and fellow Pittsburgh resident, Chip Ganassi.
Tomlin went all in, rocking the PNC Bank orange hat as well.
I’ll let you know when to call me Sir
Scott Dixon had quite the weekend in Detroit. Along with his win in Race 2 of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, he was awarded New Zealand’s Order of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours’ List from Queen Elizabeth II.
A five-time NTT IndyCar Series champion, Dixon was very humbled by the honor.
Daly is back and ready to ride
In news that broke Tuesday, Conor Daly will be back in an Indy car and drive for Carlin in the No. 59 Gallagher Chevrolet at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday. Daly appreciated the opportunity and will look to build off the momentum of his 10th-place finish two weeks ago at the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
