IndyCar Series driver Ed Carpenter made big headlines Wednesday, but it had little to do with his driving performance. It had a lot to do with the passenger riding along in the two-seater Indy car he was driving: Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne.
Wayne is known for making a grand entrance at the start of training camp each summer. He didn't disappoint this go-round, arriving for camp at Anderson University in the back seat of an open-wheel race car.
Social media, of course, went wild ...
