Penske Games: Power, Castroneves are kings of foosball at Team Penske

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.

ZANDVOORT, Netherlands — The Dutch Grand Prix became the fourth Formula One race canceled this season because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, after organizers decided Thursday they didn’t want to play host to an event without spectators.

It was to be the first Dutch GP since 1985, but F1 wants to start the season with no spectators at races.

“We would like to celebrate this moment, the return of Formula 1 in Zandvoort, together with our racing fans in the Netherlands,” race director Jan Lammers said in a statement. “We ask everyone to be patient. I had to look forward to it for 35 years, so I can wait another year.”

The race in Zandvoort was set for May 3 and initially postponed. Fans who bought tickets can use them next year.

The coastal circuit has been redesigned, with some corners banked to facilitate faster racing.

The other races canceled this year were the season-opening Australian GP on March 15; the Monaco GP on May 24; and the French GP on June 28.

Another six have been postponed.

F1 organizers still hope to reschedule those and hold 15 to 18 races this season, starting in July with back-to-back races at the Austrian GP.
