IndyCar’s State Fair Shenanigans (VIDEO)


Alex Tagliani wore a beaver suit, and Conor Daly one-bited a grilled cheese sandwich.

That’s what the Indiana State Fair does to IndyCar drivers when they return home after a race weekend.

“Tag” – who was replaced by Luca Filippi at the last round at Mid-Ohio in the No. 98 Barracuda Racing Honda – still made good to wear a beaver suit in a fundraising competition between he and Scott Dixon to raise money for charities. As a result, he actually rode a tricycle around at the State Fair and participated in other fun events, all for a good cause.

Here’s a link to a video from the Indianapolis Star, and also a read from the IndyCar official website. IndyCar’s video produced is linked below.

That wasn’t the only bit of fun had by members of the IndyCar driving fraternity Monday at the fair. NBC Sports Network IndyCar insider and pit reporter Robin Miller wrote a piece for summarizing the shenanigans.
