  • Man arrested after he heard others 'talking trash' on NASCAR

    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.

  • Mari Hulman George wanted no help giving the Indy 500 command (Video)

    Don't you ever get in the way of Mari Hulman George giving the command at the Indianapolis 500.

    As the Chairperson of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, she's traditionally given the command for drivers to start their engines for the iconic race.

    Sunday, she was escorted to the stage by a woman in a white dress who wanted to help. Hulman George, 80, didn't want it.

    Look at that death glare. We're working to identify the woman who got the look from Hulman George, though Deadspin identifies her as Nancy George, Mari's daughter. We're guessing there was a discussion after they exited the stage.
