2018 Indianapolis 500 winner Will Power held up Detroit-area traffic early Tuesday morning.
Well, to be exact, Power held up a Detroit-area traffic report on local TV station WXYZ when he stepped on-set while reporter Jennifer Ann Wilson was giving her report.
Power walked up to the traffic map and asked Wilson “can I get directions to Toowoomba, Australia?” (his hometown), pretending to not realize Wilson’s report was on-air and live.
Wilson, who called him “Mr. Will Powers (plural, not singular),” replied to Power’s direction request, “not yet.”
Power then asked, “Hi, are we live? I guess I got a bit lost.”
Power initially said he was “confused” and made a mistake, but later admitted it was a prank.
Power was in the Motor City to promote the 2019 Detroit Grand Prix, as tickets went on sale today for the June 1-2 event.
