IndyCar Drivers Robbed At Gunpoint At Taco Bell Drive-Thru

When Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti got to the window to pay for their food, they had to cancel their order. There would be no soft taco’s to be had on this night.

According to TMZ Sports, the two IndyCar racers had just been robbed at gunpoint.

Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the robbery. Shortly after holding the two drivers at gunpoint, approximately 30 minutes later, police found the teenagers nearby. When they approached the teens, one attempted to flee and had to be taken down by canine.

When questioned by the police, both teens said they had found the stolen property.

The robbery took place only a few blocks away from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Hours before the incident, Dixon posted his best times at the  Speedway.  Franchitti was a three-time IndyCar winner before his retirement in 2013. A serious neck injury sustained in a car wreck forced him to retire out of fear for his safety.
