Rachel’s Rundown: The best of what’s happening in and around Indy this weekend

“Celebs in the Sulky”
Hoosier Park Racing and Casino

Their “Celebs in the Sulky” event starts at 6 p.m. and it’s their first-ever IndyCar celebrity event. This will truly be a different kind of horsepower because they are literally giving these drivers the reigns to race against one another around Hoosier Park—horse, cart, and all!
