Mr. Pagenaud goes to Washington!

Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud and Team Penske visited the White House on Monday where they were honored by President Donald Trump.

The group arrived on the South Lawn sidewalk, with Pagenaud's #22 winning Dallara and Indy's famous Borg Warner trophy in tow for a meet and greet with the POTUS.

Trump, flanked by Pagenaud and team owner Roger Penske, praised the IndyCar squad for its outstanding track record at the Brickyard which now stands at 18 outright wins.

"I wouldn’t do it," Trump said, gazing at the Frenchman's car as he congratulated its driver.

But a glance at the gleaming silver trophy enticed Trump to revise his judgement.

"Maybe for that trophy I would do it!"
