Shirtless NASCAR Drivers & IndyCar Hunks: How much of an ignoramus are we? Well, when it comes to car racing we must confess that we are as ignorant as Adam the very first time he opened his eyes in the Garden of Eden. Haha. Why do we say this? Because we thought all along that the Indianapolis 500 is part of NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing). Turns out that it is not. Rather, it is part of the IndyCar Series. IndyCar and NASCAR are two different beasts. This, of course, got us asking “Who’s got the hotter, sexier, hunkier shirtless drivers: NASCAR or IndyCar?” Well, this post where we are featuring shirtless NASCAR and IndyCar 500 drivers should help you decide.
Let’s begin our list of shirtless NASCAR drivers with poster boy Carl Edwards, winner of the 2007 NASCAR Busch Series championship and favorite of magazine editors such as ESPN Magazine and Men’s Health who had him on their magazine covers. Can anyone from the Indycar series outhunk this guy? [Want more Carl Edwards shirtless photos?]
Fans of 32-year-old Tomas Scheckter, currently with the Team REDLINE Xtreme of the IndyCar series, will argue that Tomas has more defined washboard abs. And, ohhhhh, he kinda looks like Jake Gyllenhaal too.
Also blessed with washboard abs and movie star good looks is Josef Newgarden who currently drives for the for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing in the IndyCar series. He is our favorite in this list of shirtless NASCAR drivers and IndyCar racers.
Looking for a boyishly cute NASCAR or IndyCar driver? Well, check out Nelson Piquet Jr. This Brazilian cutie used to be with Formula 1 but decided to try his luck with NASCAR where he is doing pretty good having won, to date, one NASCAR Nationwide Series (the 2012 Sargento 200 Road America) and two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series titles (the 2012 VFW 200 in Michigan and the 2012 Smith’s 350 in Las Vegas).
Also looking hunky but boyish is Trevor Bayne, the youngest driver to win the Daytona 500 in 2011 when he was only 20 years and 1 day. Check him out shivering shirtless after a swim.
Here’s the video of Trevor going for a swim in the woods from which we screencapped the image above. Damn. Ain’t he adorable and charming and cute!
Let’s go back to IndyCar hunks with 26-year-old Marco Andretti, a third-generation Andretti racer according to wikipedia. His grandfather (Mario Andretti), father (Michael Andretti), great uncle (Aldo Andretti), uncle (Jeff Andretti), and two cousins (John and Adam Andretti) are also accomplished racers.
Another pic of a shirtless Marco who, to date, has two wins to his name.
