Race Car Drivers Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti Reportedly Robbed At Gunpoint At Taco Bell

Two race car drivers were reportedly robbed at gunpoint last night.

Indianapolis 500 pole-winner Scott Dixon and former Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti were robbed at a Taco Bell on Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Thankfully, it seems like both drivers are okay. They were apparently going on a food run for other drivers.

Per the AP:

A police report that the robbery happened shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday at the fast-food restaurant less than a mile from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Dixon had hours earlier won the top starting position for next Sunday's Indy 500.

The police report says two males ran away after the robbery and that Dixon's wife, Emma, was also in the vehicle. Officers later arrested two boys, ages 15 and 14.

Dixon previously won the Indy 500 in 2008 and Franchitti won it in 2007, 2010 and 2012. He retired in 2013.
