Apparently, Space Camp was not enough for Verizon IndyCar Series drivers James Hinchcliffe and Josef Newgarden.
Before getting their weekend underway at the Shell/Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston, the two Honda-powered drivers made their way to NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
Johnson is home to the United States’ corps of astronauts and Mission Control, which manages all flight control for the U.S. space program.
Guiding the two IndyCar pilots through the tour were U.S. astronauts Drew Feustel, a veteran of NASA’s penultimate Space Shuttle flight back in 2011, and Anna Fisher, who has worked on the Space Shuttle and International Space Station projects.
