Lights Presented by Cooper Tires driver Dalton Kellett for
Andretti Autosport
spent Tuesday afternoon kicking a soccer ball
around on the Yard of Bricks. Kellett, along with three other Indy Lights and
Verizon IndyCar Series drivers took on the soccer professionals of the Indy
Eleven team to kickoff the North American Soccer League’s Championship held in
Indianapolis this weekend.


10-minute game consisted of a four-on-four line-up with Zeke, the Indy Eleven team
mascot in the goal for the professionals. Both teams put points on the board,
including a goal made by Kellett. However, when
the time expired, it was the Indy Eleven players who claimed


the opportunity to play against the Indy Eleven players at the Speedway was a
lot of fun,”
Kellett. “There is a strong sports
presence in Indianapolis, so it is great to get out and support another local
team and their athletes. I’ve played a few soccer games before but I don’t
think any were as memorable as this, with the Yard of Bricks at the center of
the pitch.”


the drivers did not claim victory, they each received a custom jersey and gave their support
to the pro players as they wished the team good luck in the semifinal round of this weekend’s
Championship playoff.


Kellett expressed: “The Indy Eleven guys have been doing really well in their season and I
want to wish them good luck in their game this weekend!”


Eleven will take on FC Edmonton of Alberta, Canada Saturday at 3 p.m. ET at the
Michael A. Carroll Stadium in Downtown Indianapolis. The winner of this semifinal round will progress to the
Finals and play the winner of the match between the New York Cosmos and the
Rayo OKC. For details about Indy Eleven
