Check this out. The folks from the IndyCar Series included a driver blooper video as part of their 2013 championship celebration event.
It’s good stuff and goes to show that IndyCar drivers know how to have some fun. Enjoy!
Penske Racing was perfect Friday in the first phase toward pushing Helio Castroneves to the IndyCar championship.
Will Power, Castroneves and AJ Allmendinger swept the front row in qualifying for Saturday night’s season finale at Auto Club Speedway, where Castroneves is trying to chase down Scott Dixon for the IndyCar title.
Roger Penske, needing nothing short of a miracle for Helio Castroneves to win the IndyCar title in this weekend’s season finale, will run a third car for AJ Allmendinger in what’s presumed to be a strategic move to aid their championship chances.
But if the plan is for Allmendinger to try to snatch points away from championship leader Scott Dixon, Penske isn’t showing his hand.
Scott Dixon took control of the IndyCar championship race when Helio Castroneves suffered his second mechanical failure in two days at the Grand Prix of Houston, where the race ended when Dario Franchitti’s car went airborne into the fence on the final lap.
The accident in Turn 5 happened when the car of four-time IndyCar champion Franchitti launched over Takuma Sato’s and sailed into the fence. Debris was showered into the grandstand from both the cars colliding and the impact with the fence, and Franchitti’s badly damaged car bounced back onto the track. E.J. Viso then hit Sato’s car.
