Fast Six: What's trending in INDYCAR

Updated: 

INDYCAR's #FastSix is a report that borrows from all things found online about NTT IndyCar Series racing, its drivers and people. We find pics, quips and the occasional GIF as INDYCAR drivers live their extraordinary lives and put the evidence on Twitter, Instagram and more. Check back regularly for the latest.

Restock your collector’s shelves for a good cause

Among the latest list of items to be added to Sebastien Bourdais’ Kart 4 Kids Auction is this stunner from JR Hildebrand. With Colton Herta’s winning firesuit from the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona, signed suits from Tony Kanaan and Graham Rahal and a number of other amazing items, this charity auction – which benefits Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida – is a racing collector’s dream.

Click on the auction link to see all the items available. Go ahead, treat yourself to some of the coolest racing memorabilia out there, and do it for the kids!

Another pretty special donation. Thanks a bunch @JRHildebrand for that 2017 helmet! You can bid here: https://t.co/Nlr2KKHLbW pic.twitter.com/gsrh5Xzjnl

An honor for a lifetime

On Saturday, 2012 NTT IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay was honored at the 13th annual Boca Raton Concours d’ Elegance, winning the prestigious Motorsports Lifetime Achievement award. Hunter-Reay, a graduate of nearby Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was presented the award by former late-night show host and car enthusiast Jay Leno.

All he does is win, win, win

Congrats to reigning Indy Pro 2000 Champion presented by Cooper Tires champ Rinus VeeKay, who captured the F3 Asian Winter Series championship this past weekend. We can’t wait to see what he does in Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires with Juncos Racing this year.

Good luck at the test next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Rinus!

V I C T O R Y in Malaysia! 🇲🇾

That’s my second championship in six months. Can’t wait for Homestead next week 👊#hitechgp #KNAFTalentFirst #LaPlace #HalloJumbo #F3 #RTI pic.twitter.com/9oR00mlDBB

It’s all Swedish to us …

We’ve loved watching the budding friendship between rookie Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports rookie Marcus Ericsson and teammate James Hinchcliffe develop over the past few months. Next up for this dynamic duo is a language lesson for “Yames” that seems slightly, well, off.

Well... I see what you did there @ericsson_marcus... Very funny... For the record, Canada is better at hockey!! @INDYCAR // @SPMINDYCAR // #INDYCAR // #ArrowDriven pic.twitter.com/AzRiiQreMR

Going for four, not fore

PGA Tour golfer Ryan Palmer captured this excellent shot of our Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing driver Graham Rahal teeing off at the Honda Classic Pro-Am on Wednesday morning. Rahal is a great INDYCAR driver and no slouch driving a golf ball, either. He’s a three-time winner of the event.

Getting closer to the streets of St. Pete – literally!

Almost an annual tradition at this point, 11 drivers took to Sebring International Raceway on Monday to prepare for the upcoming Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, the NTT IndyCar Series season opener just two hours west of Sebring, Florida. Another 11 drivers will hit the track on March 4 before the race to St. Pete begins. Check out this action shot of Zach Veach’s No. 26 Gainbridge Honda from Andretti Autosport.

Pre-season testing has officially ended. Great day at Sebring for us. Feeling strong and ready for @gpstpete! #BoldandSteady PC: Chris Jones
