No filter

Scott Dixon and his wife, Emma, find the very best vacation spots. This week, Dixon’s Twitter shows us, Emma is sipping coconut milk in St. Lucia. On the towel next to her, Scott’s keeping his mind on his day job by reading Bruce McLaren’s 1964 autobiography, “From the Cockpit.”

Down to there, hair!

Farther north, Tony Kanaan competed with six other Verizon IndyCar Series drivers in the Race Of Champions all-star event in Miami. When he wasn’t racing, Kanaan spent time with self-proclaimed urban outlaw Magnus Walker, known as one of world’s most prolific Porsche collectors. We love the snap that the hairless Kanaan Instagrammed with the dreadlocked Walker and, considering Kanaan’s stubble, wonder if Walker’s influence is rubbing off.

Nice to catch up with my friend and legend @magnuswalker . 🇧🇷 Muito bom rever meu amigo e lenda das Porsches.

Northern stars

In other celebrity news, James Hinchcliffe stopped by the set of the Canadian comedy-drama series, “Private Eyes,” and snapped a photo with former Indy Lights driver and team co-owner Jason Priestley, a fellow Canadian.

Had a blast with the legend @Jason_Priestley when I swung by the set of #PrivateEyes last week. We still have to name your car!

INDYCAR media day 2017

The Verizon IndyCar Series hosted its 2017 media day in Indianapolis on Jan. 18 and that produced social media posts of all kinds. Drivers dressed up, talked about their favorite things and some even juggled.

And it's a wrap for @ConorDaly22 at #IndyCar Media Day! #TeamChevy

All @IndyCar drivers have great hand-eye coordination, but which one is the best juggler? We'll find out today on @FOX59 @h3lio @Hinchtown

And when the last interview was done, Ed Carpenter and JR Hildebrand decompressed with a game of table tennis. Ed Carpenter Racing camera captured it on video.

How @edcarpenter20 & @JRHildebrand unwind after a long day of interviews 🏓

Pit stop challenge 

Speaking of Ed Carpenter Racing, its pit stop practices are on fast forward in the team Twitter feed and it’s pretty cool. We wish them luck on moving at that speed come March.

The scene in our shop every single day before lunch - pit stop practice for the crew!

Truck yeah

It looks like French Verizon IndyCar Series champ Simon Pagenaud is set up with a great, big American ride. We’ll bet he can make crepes in his fancy new fifth wheel, too.
