INDYCAR's "Fast Six" is a report derived from all things found online about Verizon IndyCar Series racing, its drivers and people. We seek and find pics and quips as INDYCAR drivers live their extraordinary lives and put the evidence on Twitter, Instagram and more. Check back regularly when we post the latest.
Daddy! Oh …
Beau Power’s face showed us everything daddy Will Power was apparently thinking last weekend when the No. 12 car crashed into Scott Dixon’s No. 9 on the first lap of the Honda Indy Toronto and ended his race. Sending good luck for baby smiles and giggles at the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on July 30.

Down but never out
The photo Ed Jones posted on his Instagram account at the Honda Indy Toronto looks a little like an ad for an orthopedist. Instead, the snap makes our hearts happy because it’s clear Sebastien Bourdais is recovering nicely from his scary crash during Indianapolis 500 practice and Jones is taking care of his braking foot. Jones keeps posting impressive rookie-season results, so we’re glad his “Go” pedal foot isn’t affected.
The misfits. Good to have the champ back at the track this weekend, @sbourdais recovering quickly! #indycar #dalecoyneracing

James Hinchcliffe gets to race for a hometown crowd once a year at the Honda Indy Toronto and he drove his way to a podium finish for the second year in a row, making Canadians proud. Along the way, he posted this cool image:

After a whirlwind week that included earning the pole position at the Honda Indy Toronto and a trip to Los Angeles because of his ESPY nomination, Verizon IndyCar Series champ Simon Pagenaud was up for an early flight Monday morning. Guess it was time to get on with life.

While we’re still talking about Pagenaud’s ESPY nomination, did you see this fun shot from his VIP seat in the audience? Nice shades.

Winning at life
Race car drivers are just like the rest of us! That’s what we thought when we saw this JR Hildebrand tweet about dropping his car off at the dealer just before his warranty was up and having them replace a bunch of stuff.
When you drop your car off a week before the warranty's up and they decided to replace your entire rear end... 👌 #CTSV pic.twitter.com/higgxNVUlA
