NEW RIDE

There’s no better holiday present for a Verizon IndyCar Series driver than an opportunity to test the nifty, new 2018 aero kit and AJ Foyt Racing driver Tony Kanaan approves of his new toy.

🇺🇸 The beginning of a new chapter. First test with @ajfoytracing and my first time driving the 2018 #INDYCAR aero package. Car looks as good as it drives. Excited to back behind the wheel 👊🏼 🇧🇷 O começo de um novo capítulo. Primeiro teste com a equipe nova e com o carro 2018 da Indy. O carro tá lindão e o bicho de guiar! #ABCSupplyRacing

BIGLY BIRTHDAY

Conor Daly, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Dec. 15, got well wishes from some of pop culture’s coolest kids - music artists Zedd and Andrew Taggart of the Chainsmokers and NBA superstar Russell Westbrook, who was in Indy for the Oklahoma City Thunder's visit to the Indiana Pacers.

I think I might have to frame this one. Great having these guys in #Indy! @zedd @drewtaggart @russwest44 @thechainsmokers photo cred- @tylerhillphoto #JingleJam #WZPL #NBA #MVP #WhoLetMeInThisPhotoSeriously

WINE CLOSET  

Maybe Penske’s Simon Pagenaud watches a lot of HGTV or maybe he’s just handy. Either way, it looks like the French driver will be breaking in a new wine “closet” in the new year.

Tested out my latest home improvement project last night! Have an empty closet? In our house that turns into a wine cellar! 🍷 #diy #home #beforeandafter pic.twitter.com/l00bXuiZu9

HITTING THE SLOPES

Rahal Letterman Lanigan driver Graham Rahal and wife, NHRA Funny Car driver Courtney Force, will be having a white Christmas while in Colorado for the Rahal family's holiday ski trip.

Super proud of my first time ski-bunny today! She did awesome. So much fun w/ family here in Beaver Creek! #FamilyTime #ChristmasTime #Christmas #QALOteam
