Reppin’ the red, white and blue
Independence Day celebrations brought about all sorts of American sentiment and with an off weekend on the schedule, Verizon IndyCar drivers had time for some rest and relaxation.
Graham Rahal made sure to dress the part while in the Lake Tahoe area, right down to a pair of red, white and blue shoes, and took to social media to share his patriotism.
Into each life some rain must fall
It was a dreary Fourth of July in Indianapolis, but that didn’t stop Conor Daly’s good time. Instead of fireworks, Daly and his family created a massive slip ‘n slide.

Sky rockets in flight
It wasn’t raining over the lake where Marco Andretti was celebrating so, with a little fancy camera work and some fireworks, he made the Twittersphere dizzy:
Happy 4th from all of us at the lake ! pic.twitter.com/CgrqQsisVd

Made in America
Charlie Kimball’s post was simple: “Always proud to wear the red, white and blue.”
He the North
Canadian driver James Hinchcliffe was feeling patriotic, too, albeit on Canada Day (July 1) so he did some reppin’ of his own by throwing out the first pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays game. He also suggested that we all toss back a few maple syrup shots. We’ll let The Mayor show us the proper technique.
Happily Ever After
Kiwi Scott Dixon and his family spent their off week back in Elkhart Lake, Wis., toasting a friend’s wedding. Dixon’s daughters Poppy and Tilly served as flower girls. The photo is way too gorgeous not to share.
