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.
Thursday’s Stage 12 of the 40th Dakar Rally not only closed the overall standings gap in at least two classes (cars and trucks), two other classes (bikes and quads) failed to get going due to weather conditions.
The full video highlights of Stage 12 will air on NBCSN on Friday at 7 pm ET, but here are some of the highlights from Thursday’s action:
2018 Dakar Rally: Nasser Al-Attiyah wins Stage 12 of cars
Stage 12 cancelled due to weather conditions
Ton van Genugten edged out Martin Kolomy in Stage of, while Federico Villagra and Eduard Nikolaev both faced an uphill battle to finish fourth and third respectively.
Even though the Quads were also impacted by weather issues on Thursday, Ignacio Casale, the 2014 Dakar winner, continues to make his case for a second overall victory in the quads.
