Bad boys, bad boys: Watch Newgarden get ‘served’ by cop, Pagenaud

1 Comment

The ongoing “autograph battle” between Team Penske teammates Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud just went to a new — and we have to admit, a very impressive — level.

Pagenaud has spent the last couple of weeks scheming and strategizing, looking for a way to not only top his “bro”, but to do it in such a big fashion to also pull way ahead in who is winning the autograph battle.

Thursday, Pagenaud pulled off arguably the best stunt of all during the two-month autograph war the two have been having.

Newgarden was driving along in a rental car equipped with cameras, thinking he was making a video for fans to see as he was on his way to a speaking engagement.

But … Pagenaud had another plan.

You owe it to yourself to check out the hysterical video below — we don’t want to tell you much about it so as not to spoil it for you — especially the last part where Newgarden is … well … let’s just say he gets “served” by Pagenaud.

Check it out — and, oh yeah, as Simon says, Josef, “It’s your move, bro”:

IMSA’s 50th Anniversary Celebration: Why Sebring is so special to Bobby Rahal

Bobby Rahal has driven in some of the biggest races in the world, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 Hours and, of course, winning the Indianapolis 500 as a driver in 1986 and in 2004 as a team owner.

But winning the 12 Hours of Sebring two years in a row (1987 and 1988), Rahal feels, is right up there in terms of his greatest accomplishments as a race car driver.

As IMSA celebrates its 50th anniversary, Rahal reflected on what racing at Sebring International Raceway has meant to him:

“To me, Sebring is the ultimate endurance race. Not as long as Daytona or Le Mans, but the demands put on a car and driver at Sebring are highly unusual.

“My father raced at Sebring in the late 60’s. To win that race two years in a row really meant something to me.

“While we’ve won a lot of other races, we’ve won just about everywhere, you name it. But for me personally, winning at Sebring those two years in a row was very special.”
