With his Firestone 600 win at Texas Motor Speedway behind him and the rest of the Verizon IndyCar Series season in front of him, Ed Carpenter spent the weekend of June 21 at home with his family in Indianapolis.
But he didn’t stop moving.
Carpenter and his wife, Heather, helped raise charitable funds on June 21 when they participated in the 6th annual Dayspring Mini-Golf Classic at Pirates’ Cove. Guests at the event were apparently motivated by a chance to play a round of putt-putt with Carpenter because the opportunity was auctioned for $2,300 – the money goes to assist homeless families at the Indianapolis center.
Once mini-golfing got started, Carpenter played and played some more — he didn’t stop until his last round was complete, despite getting a little wet when it rained.
