More Power, Daddy, more Power!

Team Penske driver Will Power has documented a few moments in the life of his son, Beau, over the past few days. And we cannot get over how adorable they are.

What’s @12willpower doing to prepare for the @detroitgp?

He’s having a serious chat with his co-driver, Beau. #INDYCAR | @verizon | #DetroitGP pic.twitter.com/L6sr64rHAD

Double Detroit dip

After winning Race 2 of the 2018 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear, Ryan Hunter-Reay decided to jump in the Scott Fountain on Belle Isle, where victory lane is located. With that dip in the water, Hunter-Reay apparently started a tradition as this year’s winners Josef Newgarden and Scott Dixon followed (wet) suit. Dixon even coerced his No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing crew to join him.

Victory bath for @josefnewgarden 💦💦@detroitgp Race 1 in the books- join us tomorrow as we look to brighter skies for the #DuelinDetroit Race 2.@IndyCar // @TeamChevy pic.twitter.com/8MX7KahfHE

Kanaan to be on equal footing with his boss

Tony Kanaan is already known as the iron man of Indy car racing with his ongoing streak of 308 consecutive race starts the all-time record. The Brazilian is about to reach another milestone displaying his incredible longevity and durability.

In Saturday’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway, Kanaan will make his 369th overall Indy car start. It will equal his car owner, Indy car legend A.J. Foyt, for the second most all time. Kanaan talked about the feat.

.@TonyKanaan will make his 369th Indy car start this weekend @TXMotorSpeedway which ties A.J. Foyt’s Indy car career total starts.

We asked the 2004 #INDYCAR champion and 2013 #Indy500 winner a few questions: https://t.co/YzDelL5HCd#ABCSupplyRacing | #DXC600 pic.twitter.com/uA43Y8TGMG

NFL x INDYCAR in Detroit

Of the many cheering Dixon on to his victory Sunday was Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. The Super Bowl-winning head coach is a friend of Dixon’s car owner and fellow Pittsburgh resident, Chip Ganassi.

Tomlin went all in, rocking the PNC Bank orange hat as well.

I’ll let you know when to call me Sir

Scott Dixon had quite the weekend in Detroit. Along with his win in Race 2 of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, he was awarded New Zealand’s Order of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours’ List from Queen Elizabeth II.

A five-time NTT IndyCar Series champion, Dixon was very humbled by the honor.

You don't have to call him Sir Scott Dixon, at least not yet.

As part of The Queen's Birthday Honours List, @scottdixon9 was awarded New Zealand’s Order of Merit. See how he does in today's race on @NBC: https://t.co/SOmg9gnXHI #INDYCAR #DetroitGP pic.twitter.com/bqkkkeO8TM

Daly is back and ready to ride

In news that broke Tuesday, Conor Daly will be back in an Indy car and drive for Carlin in the No. 59 Gallagher Chevrolet at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday. Daly appreciated the opportunity and will look to build off the momentum of his 10th-place finish two weeks ago at the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

Looking forward to this opportunity with @CarlinRacing @TXMotorSpeedway ! Will do my best to contribute to the team in a positive way. Let’s have a great weekend together! @GallagherGlobal #DXC600 pic.twitter.com/1M6wMeSdfy
