Indycar at Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona

Another Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race is in the history books, and Indycar stars co-drove the winning car for the fifth year in a row. 
Scott Dixon won his second '24 Hours' (first in 2006 teamed with Dan Wheldon) and Tony Kanaan took home his first win at Daytona.

14 of the 33 drivers who started the
2014 Indy 500 were in the field at Daytona.
There were also many other drivers with ties to Indycar or the Mazda Road to Indy Series.

Watching the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona is always a great start to racing season but it makes us even more anxious for the Indycar season to begin!

A.J. Foyt is 80!


Check out this great video showing some other Indycar Legends talking about A.J.

Mario Andretti said, "I don't know if there's anyone that admired him as much as I did."

Bobby Unser, "Probably one of the best race drivers that I ever saw.......I learned a lot from him."

Ad for 1963 U.S. Grand Prix

The 1963 Grand Prix of the United States
held at Watkins Glen, NY.
Won by Graham Hill.
Found an ad while paging through one of our old Trenton Speedway Programs.
It shows a picture of the 1962 winner Jim Clark.
Since running the last U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in 1980,
the Grand Prix has moved from Phoenix to Indianapolis
to Austin, TX where
Lewis Hamilton won the 2014 U. S. Grand Prix.

Josef Newgarden Apparel 2014

The Indycar season may be over,
i.e. Alex does not get to see Josef on TV at all...
But that does not stop her from wearing her 'Josef' clothing all the time. 
Have we ever mentioned she LOVES Josef.
And lucky for her (or maybe more for our mom who has to make  most of Alex's Josef clothing), he remained with Sarah Fisher's team and will not be changing his familiar #67.
You can check out her earlier 'Josef wardrobe' here.
A look back at her new Josef apparel
from the 2014 Indycar Season.

 The hand painted (by Alex) shirt with Josef car,
and kitty (in the bottom corner) to represent Josef's pet cat, Simba.
Worn with checkered skirt & Minnie mouse hat matching ruffle.
Very stylish outside Josef's garage at Indianapolis.

Her prized possession. 
The first 'official' kids size Josef Newgarden shirt we've been able to find.
Got it at the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing shop in downtown Speedway!

The 3rd year of the 'Josef' birthday dress for the
Josef themed 7th birthday party.
(Yes really, her 5th, 6th and 7th birthday parties were all about Josef)
The kitty theme (for Simba) was tied in this year with the ruffle.

The back.
While watching for Josef outside the garages at Pocono.
(We stood there way too long, but at least got to meet the infamous Robin Miller while we waited)

 And the final installment for the 2014 season.
The hand painted t-shirt dress for the GP of Indy.
Made extra special by the fact that she got on Josef's official website while wearing this outfit!

And no Josef post would be complete without a picture of Josef.
Alex loved this one that CFH Racing tweeted of Josef and his dad in 2003.
