If you’re following along with the stars of INDYCAR on social media, you’d know this week the drivers were all about the sports that don’t involve motors, with some at-track testing sprinkled in-between. We started the week by ending football and watched basketball with a Major League Baseball player, only to cap off a very sportsy week with fellow celebs at the NBA All-Star game. And now that the NFL season is finally over, it’s about time to start our engines. Only 29 days until the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg!
Team Penske drivers Simon Pagenaud, Will Power and Helio Castroneves appear to have enjoyed Super Bowl 50 from a hotel lobby in Phoenix. Life on the road truly is for the most glamorous.

Speaking of glamorous, it’s good to know Graham Rahal still ranks the Indy 500 on top. After a star-studded weekend at Super Bowl 50, it’s back to business for Rahal. Football is over. Let’s light this candle.

If the talent of the current generation of INDYCAR drivers is any indication on how fast the next will be, we’re in for some exciting racing. And it looks like Tony Kanaan has a bit of advice for the next up-and-comers, “Save money,” which, to be fair, is sage wisdom for pursuing all life goals.
And to continue awwww-ing at cute babies of INDYCAR, how about a new baby for the Briscoes?! Congratulations to the littlest Briscoe on soon becoming a big sister! It looks like she’s already on her way to becoming an excellent snuggler of the babiest Briscoe.
