President Donald Trump invites Simon Pagenaud to White House right after the Indy 500 Victory. After Pagenaud’s win in the Indianapolis 500 in less than an hour Donald Trump tweets that Pagenaud and his Team Penske team would soon be coming to the White House to celebrate their win. When he tweeted this, he was in Japan over the Memorial Day weekend.
The final lap battle of Pagenaud’s Indy with runner-up Alexander Rossi and his 500 win was really very amazing. And there is no doubt that it was one of the best races in the history of auto racing as Trump is hyperbolically challenging.
On April 30, at the White House, Trump had Team Penske driver Joey Logano for celebrating the NASCAR Cup Series championship 2018 of Logano. He makes certain too that he had known Pagenaud’s car owner Roger Penske for a long period of time.
Moreover, the call for Pagenaud comes after his teammate Will Power did not get one after he succeeded the 2018 Indianapolis 500. To the ahead of this year’s race Power did get to see the White House for the first time. Though, he was in Washington DC for pre-race media obligations and visited the executive house.
