Halloween is for the young – and the young at heart. Both descriptions could fit drivers in INDYCAR.

Mario Romancini as Mario

Paying homage to one of the video games that started it all – Super Mario Brothers – on its 25th anniversary is Mario Romancini.  Below is Jay Howard, who has the look if not the moves to “Thriller.”

Jay Howard as ......?

Any guesses on Jay Howard?

Wearing firesuits during daylight hours this weekend are Ryan Hunter-Reay, buoyed by a two-year deal with Andretti Autosport, and Marco Andretti. Maybe they’ll stay in character and scare up some fun in Birmingham after testing at Barber Motorsports Park.

Sarah Fisher, Danica Patrick, James Hinchcliffe, et al, were planning to attend parties so we’ll pass along photos if they dare send. Have a goolish time.

What are you dressing up as?

Hideki, a Nintendo DS and rain day

In a recent post, I wrote about seeing Tony Kanaan using an iPad in pitlane – very cool. After that, I started wondering about other IndyCar drivers and how they were using technology. In some ways it’s started a series, and I hope to feature more drivers and geekiness. I was pretty excited when I heard that Hideki Mutoh travels with a Nintendo DS. Video games were/are a big part of my life – Super Mario Brothers. FIFA soccer. Grand Theft Auto. Grand Turismo. DJ Hero – I’ve been playing them for years. And when I travel for races, I carry a PSP.
