IndyCar drivers Will Power, Tony Kanaan, James Hinchcliffe and Conor Daly led by team captain Helio Castroneves will face the toughest competition of their professional lives as they take on a team of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Nina Agdal (team captain), Samantha Hoopes, Tanya Mityushina, Robyn Lawley and Hannah Ferguson on the ABC summer hit game show, “Celebrity Family Feud”.
Hosted by Steve Harvey, the episode will air at 8:00pm ET, July 31 following the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio that airs at 2 p.m. ET on CNBC.
In each episode of “Celebrity Family Feud,” teams of five compete to win money for a designated charity. Each team is made up of a celebrity captain, with four relatives or friends playing along. The winning celebrity team is given the chance to win up to $25,000 to donate to a charity of its choice.
The Verizon IndyCar Series quintet will represent the Indy Family Foundation, a fund intended to aid those in the general motorsports community in financial need, such as having to get a loan in a hurry, due to hardship caused by illness, injury or death. The young women will be playing for the Happy Hearts Fund which rebuilds schools in areas impacted by natural disasters.
Follow-up note: Our guys won.
