Iowa flashback: When Hinchcliffe, Daly, Saavedra and more road tripped to Iowa (VIDEO)


A long, long time ago in a corn field far, far away, a group of drivers who were then on the Mazda Road to Indy ladder road-tripped to Iowa Speedway.

And the results were documented in a hilarious, 7-plus minute long video.

Longtime fans of the “Mayor of Hinchtown,” James Hinchcliffe, will remember that before Hinch made it to the Verizon IndyCar Series, he was making obscure, quirky, off-the-wall and seriously funny videos purely for the citizens of “Hinchtown.”

In this video above, Hinchcliffe joined Conor Daly, Conor’s dad Derek, Sebastian Saavedra and his then-girlfriend Pamela, and more took an RV to Iowa before Indy Lights, Pro Mazda (then-called Star Mazda) and USF2000 raced alongside what was then the IZOD IndyCar Series at Iowa Speedway.

See their exploits and the ensuring hilarity above. And you’ll then understand why Daly’s tweet, as he is en route back to Iowa today to drive the Honda Fastest Seat in Sports, makes sense.
