IndyCar drivers talk TikTok dances and an Indianapolis 500 mascot

Dave Calabro continues the May tradition of asking creative questions to IndyCar drivers over Milk & Cookies.

SPEEDWAY, Ind. — As IndyCar drivers and the month of May traditions return to Speedway, Dave Calabro brings back his (somewhat new) May tradition of Milk & Cookies. Dave bring the milk, the cookies and the questions. The drivers bring their best answer.

In this edition of Mlik & Cookies with Dave Calabro, Dave learns some pretty creative ideas about creating a mascot for the Indy 500, and he gets some insight into the drivers’ TikTok preferences.

While IndyCar's stars may not agree on engines and tires and track maneuvers, they do seem to agree on one thing — how to describe Indiana-native and fellow driver Conor Daly!

DAVE: We've got a winner… TikTok.
