The day after: social media roundup of Newgarden’s second IndyCar win

6 Comments

It’s been a little less than 24 hours since Josef Newgarden won his second career Verizon IndyCar race with Luca Filippi completing the 1-2 finish by CFH Racing at the Honda Indy Toronto.

Newgarden took to Instagram Monday afternoon, saying the previous day was a”dream.”

Woke up this morning from a crazy dream.

The trophies won but both Newgarden and Filippi (yes, second place gets a trophy too) are all ready on display at CFH Racing’s headquarters in Speedway, Indiana.

Newgarden also made sure to give a shout out to Nick Tandy, one of the winners of the 24 Hours of Le Mans over the weekend.

Filippi received congratulations from countryman and legend Alex Zanardi, a hero in so many ways after his recovery from his 2001 crash in Germany, and a past CART champion.

Zanardi wasn’t the only one to weigh in. So too did fellow Italian and another former IndyCar/CART driver in Max Papis.
