When performing artist and Toronto native Drake said he was “running through the 6 with his woes” in this popular hip-hop song, linguists translated this phrase to mean “hanging out in Toronto with friends.” During NBA All-Star weekend, James Hinchcliffe ran through the 6 with his woes, and together Hinchcliffe, Conor Daly and Josef Newgarden charged their way onto the court of the biggest game and suited up for the hottest parties.

…to boldly go where no man has gone before. Although we’re pretty sure Star Trek’s Worf, Michael Dorn, was looking for a different kind of race to answer his question. But Data, Brent Spiner, has the same mindset as us at INDYCAR: the question doesn’t really matter, Indy 500 is always the answer.

And to round out this week’s Fast Six, Belardi Racing driver Zach Veach wrote a story about that time one-third of the Indy Lights field ventured off into the wilderness together to go rock climbing. Thank the racing gods they all returned safely:
