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”:

Part-time NTT IndyCar Series entrant Juncos Racing will announce their attempt to qualify for the 2019 Indianapolis 500 within the next few weeks, according to RACER.

The team, which made its Indy 500 debut in 2017, ran 12 of the 17 IndyCar Series races last season, but has only made a start in one of the four events so far in 2019, finishing 18th in the inaugural running of the IndyCar Classic at Circuit of the Americas with Kyle Kaiser behind the wheel.

Though no driver has yet to be announced for the single-car entry, Kaiser is expected to be the leading candidate for the ride. The 23-year-old Californian has raced for the team since 2014, where he won the 2017 Indy Lights championship.

One of the top teams in the Road to Indy ladder system, Juncos Racing has over 50 wins between Indy Lights and Indy Pro 2000 competition. The team’s most recent victory came in the second Indy Lights race at St. Petersburg this year with Rinus VeeKay behind the wheel.
