What a memorable weekend for Josef Newgarden at Road America.
The Team Penske driver and defending IndyCar series champion picked up his third victory of the season, leading 53 of 55 laps to take the 222-mile-long Kohler Grand Prix.
A fan then tried to add a new tradition during the champagne celebration on the podium, briefly stealing his victory bottle.
MUST WATCH #INDYCAR fans know how to celebrate a win!

Newgarden has such a devoted following at the Wisconsin road course that one fan even planted _ that's right, a new garden _ in his honor.
Swung by the “New-Garden” camp site last night at @roadamerica.

"These people had a professional setup with little 'baby Josefs' growing," Newgarden said after the race. "It was kind of cool."
