The two made three laps around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of a pre-race ritual. “She’s going to distract me quite a bit, actually,” Andretti joked before their ride. “I hope I can just look ahead while I’m driving.”

Gaga was a last minute replacement for Keith, who was forced to drop out due to a back injury.
