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.
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 RACER.com summarizing the shenanigans.
