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.

Highlights make page 1 on Digg.com

Just noticed that the second practice session from Long Beach made page one on digg. Great to see that the fans dugg the highlight reel and are enjoying the coverage of the event.  I also noticed that fans are enjoying this season’s Flickr sets. Take a look at Daniel’s post about Flickr and digg that too!

There are also a lot of great video pieces out there that are being produced by our friends at IMS Productions, including a great list of Vlogs from Hideki Mutoh and Conquest Teammates-Mario Romancini and Bertrand Baguette…Click here to view all driver Vlogs…

There are also a couple of clips from the Hollywood BLVD take over event on Thursday evening.  You can check those and all the IZOD activation clips out here.

Lot’s of great content this weekend form LBC, look forward to more all season long.

Thanks for the support.

Today was a good day.

For most avid IndyCar.com users…you’ll understand what I am talking about. Besides not having audio during the morning sessions of the day, both streaming and timing and scoring went really well. This was a breath of fresh air for all of us.
