Famous photo bomb
When you snap a celeb picture at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, be prepared for surprises. Race car drivers are everywhere and they show up unexpectedly. INDYCAR’s Conor Daly and NASCAR Xfinity driver Ryan Reed photo-bombed their way into this shot of Joe Jonas last weekend taken when Jonas’ band, DNCE, played 400 Fest at the Brickyard.
Teenage dream come true.. met @joejonas at #400Fest. Photobomb by @ConorDaly22 @driverRyanReed- not part of the dream 😝 Made for an epic 📸 pic.twitter.com/FRCV6n6zsy
Four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion and current points leader Scott Dixon celebrated his 37th birthday Saturday and social media was buzzing with well wishes. Fellow driver James Hinchcliffe’s post said it all.
Happy Bday to the living legend, @scottdixon9!! I really hope you stop getting better with age at some point!! Give us a chance!
We’re not sure how it happened, but apparently JR Hildebrand gave a pair of newlyweds a lift to their nuptials in his gorgeous, pink 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. We wish them luck and lots of fun retelling that racing story.
Rosie caught the eye of these two, so when they asked if I'd drive them to their wedding in her I couldn't say no! Congrats Sherrie & Dave! pic.twitter.com/VEJY0ndjqX
Speaking of pretty cars, drivers are atwitter about the new Dallara universal aero kit for 2018, giving new meaning to the concept of “Christmas in July.”
This is like telling a kid what's under the tree but not letting him unwrap it until Xmas morning. #Tease #IWannaPlay https://t.co/c67oSVI9YG

After the first pictures of the 2018 car were published, Juan Pablo Montoya and Oriol Servia got a chance to take the new bodywork for a spin around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval. They weren’t mad about it.
