It’s a Wednesday on a week when there isn’t a Verizon IndyCar Series race, although the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stays out West with its race at Phoenix International Raceway this weekend.

Perhaps that makes it the perfect day for Team Penske to release the next round of its fun, “Penske Games” series.

In preparation for Easter, Penske’s four IndyCar drivers – Josef Newgarden, Helio Castroneves, Will Power and Simon Pagenaud – and two of three NASCAR drivers in Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney attempted to stuff their faces with as many marshmallows as possible and still be able to say the words “chubby bunny.”

It is as hilarious as the above description would make it.

See who mastered the ultimate test of Easter food performance in the above video.

BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Daniel Ricciardo says he would relish the challenge of having Lewis Hamilton as his teammate if he joins Mercedes next year.

Ricciardo is out of contract at Red Bull at the end of the season and expressed interest in joining teams like Mercedes or Ferrari to help him challenge for the championship.

The Australian says he would “love to obviously be challenged against the best and Lewis is obviously up there.”

He adds: “I don’t want to say it’s just Lewis I’m looking for but that would be a good challenge.”

Ricciardo says he won’t accept a faster car if it means playing second fiddle to an established star.

He says “there’s always been really good clarity and fairness (at Red Bull) … and I would expect that environment everywhere.”
