Are IndyCar Drivers Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

No clue. But apparently they are smarter than Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models.

Are IndyCar Drivers Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

IndyCar driver Will Power: What part of King Kong is really long?

“His ding dong!” answered Power, and stunningly, it was the number five answer, keeping the IndyCar Drivers in the “Celebrity Family Feud,” which aired Sunday night on ABC.

The IndyCar Drivers battled the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models, perhaps the only contestants ever to pout before they lost. Power, Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, James Hinchcliffe and Conor Daly represented the drivers, and five models whose names I forgot represented the Sports Illustrated women. One may have been “Heidi.”

The drivers won every game and took the grand prize, after lackluster but lucky performances by Hinch and T.K. – as host Steve Harvey called them – and left the models, two of three of which declined to shake hands as is the custom at the buzzer – which makes me sound like I watch way too much “Family Feud” – to feel, possibly for the first time in their lives, like losers.

Oh, well. In the first half of the show, the “Bachelorettes” beat the not-surprisingly dimwitted “Bachelors,” making the hour-long battle of the sexes a draw.
