Verizon IndyCar Series driver Ed Carpenter was a busy man after winning the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway, but not too busy to slip on a tuxedo and do a little socializing at the biggest party of the summer in Indianapolis.

Verizon IndyCar Series driver Ed Carpenter and his wife, Heather, took time to enjoy Zoobilation 2014 -- the biggest party of the summer in Indianapolis.

After winning in Texas on June 7, Carpenter was in Iowa testing on June 10 and then on June 12 he tested again in Milwaukee. If he was tired, he didn’t look it when he got home in time to escort his wife, Heather, to Indianapolis’ Zoobilation on June 13. The event, Indianapolis Zoo’s annual summer mega-fundraiser, is always a sellout. It draws about 5,000 and last year raised more than $1.6 million.

About 70 area restaurants volunteer to feed party-goers, so the party is something of a taste-of-Indianapolis experience. Thousands of cocktails are poured, too, and multiple bands play, making nighttime dancing on the zoo’s grounds appealing.

The Carpenters arrived for Zoobilation’s VIP party in black tie attire. Ed sported a black tuxedo and Heather embraced the zoo’s “rock your orange” theme, in honor of its new International Orangutan Center, in a full-length look that included a bright orange skirt. After posing for photos, the Carpenters were handed a couple of orange cocktails and headed inside.

They weren’t the only ones from Indianapolis’ racing community to join the party. Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles and his wife, Beth, attended, as did Chief Marketing Officer C.J. O’Donnell, his wife, Mary and Jarrod Krisiloff, senior director of marketing, and his wife, Megan.
