  • Taylor Swift will be on Tony Kanaan's car at Detroit

    Taylor Swift is going to be on an IndyCar at Detroit this weekend.

    No, she's not going to be riding on the top of it (think of the TV ratings if she was), but her picture will be on the side of Tony Kanaan's car for the IndyCar Series' doubleheader races in Detroit. Kanaan's car is sponsored by her "1989" tour.

    The Swift (no pun intended) sponsorship is because Kanaan's Chip Ganassi Racing team has a sponsorship agreement with Big Machine Records. His teammate Sage karam will have Rascal Flatts on his car this weekend.

    Swift is also performing in Detroit on the same day as the first race. The IndyCar race starts at approximately 4 p.m. ET and Swift has a concert later that night at Ford Field. Maybe she'll show up to the race before her concert.

    If you watched more than one of Sunday's Formula 1, IndyCar and NASCAR races, we understand the need to compare the races you watched. Especially on the heels of a thrilling Indianapolis 500 that had 37 lead changes.

    And if you watched the races in the company of others, you possibly had a discussion about your comparisons. Did you disagree with the person you were comparing races with? Did you disagree with other people who were comparing the races or the series that participate in them? If it was the latter, we hope you didn't have the reaction that this Indiana man did.

    David Wilson, 57, was arrested Sunday on charges of domestic battery and strangulation after he heard his fiancee and another talking about IndyCar and NASCAR. We'll let RTV-6 in Indianapolis take it from here:

    Wilson's fiancée told police they had been drinking all day. She said Wilson became angered when he heard her and another person talking about IndyCar being better than NASCAR.
