When it comes to playing the age-old table game of foosball, Team Penske’s IndyCar drivers (and one in-particular former IndyCar driver) are much better than their NASCAR counterparts.
At least that’s the outcome of the most recent edition of The Penske Games, when 2018 Indianapolis 500 winner Will Power and former IndyCar driver turned IMSA sports car combatant Helio Castroneves took foosball bragging rights for Team Penske.
Somehow, because he may have been the odd man out or folks just felt sorry for him, 2017 IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden wound up playing on two teams, eventually finishing in second along with Austin Cindric.
That was a much better finish for Newgarden than when he was teamed with NASCAR Cup driver Brad Keselowski, who together finished last of the six two-man teams.
Check out the video to see how all six teams — and their members — wound up:
MotoGP champion Marc Marquez has second surgery on fractured arm
Defending MotoGP series champion Marc Marquez underwent a second surgery Monday after a titanium plate inserted in his fractured right arm sustained damage. The Repsol Honda Team said in a statement that it’ll be two days before the recovery period is determined.
He had planned to race in Sunday’s grand prix at the Automotodrom Brno in the Czech Republic in hopes of returning to defend his title. His status for Sunday apparently will be unclear until at least Wednesday.
In a statement Monday, the team said the titanium plate in Marquez’s right arm successfully was replaced after stress accumulation. Marquez will stay in the hospital for two days recovering.
Damage to the plate fitted to his repaired right humerus has seen @MarcMarquez93 return to the operating room in Barcelona.
It was another successful operation for the World Champion who is now recovering in hospital.https://t.co/A3ExSDcumg
Dr Xavier Mir, who performed the surgery at the Hospital Universitari Dexeus, said in the release that “Marc Marquez underwent surgery 13 days ago and today he returned to the operating room. The first operation was successful, what was not expected was that the plate was insufficient. An accumulation of stress in the operated area has caused the plate to suffer some damage, so today the titanium plate has been removed and replaced by a new fixation.
“The rider has not felt pain during this period. He has always followed the medical advice given and the feeling from his body. Unfortunately, an overstress has caused this issue. Now we have to wait 48 hours to understand the recovery time.”
