David Letterman Calls Indy 500 Tribute the 'Highlight of My Career'

David Letterman Calls Indy 500 Tribute the 'Highlight of My Career'

Originally posted 05/25/2015 02:30PM

David Letterman is already enjoying the perks of retirement just four days after wrapping Late Show, cheering on his team at the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday in Indiana.

The longtime racing fan was honored by his IndyCar team, who paid tribute to the former Late Show host through caricature. A smiling, gap-toothed illustration of Letterman was added to driver Oriol Servia's No. 32 yellow car, with "Thanks, Dave" accompanying the Late Show logo, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Team members also wore gray t-shirts mimicking Letterman's famous "Top Ten" lists, instead counting down the reasons they love the talk show host.

"With everything that's happened, it's the highlight of my career," he said. "It's crazy it's the Indianapolis 500. Regrettable my face, but also my name on that car. It's just delightful."

Tim Tebow got on one knee in Indianapolis Saturday night – to "Tebow" with Maria Menounos in the VIP section of ESPN's Super Bowl party. It was a special treat for the Extra hostess, who Tebowed solo on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.

Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.

At the Audi Super Bowl cocktail party Saturday evening, Glee's Matthew Morrison and girlfriend Renee Puente celebrated with fellow Giants fan Aaron Paul and his new fiancée, Lauren Parsekian, before the spouses-to-be took in the view of Indianapolis's Lucas Oil Stadium from the balcony of the Conrad Hotel. Also enjoying the sight: Kellan Lutz, who gushed over the midwestern city's beauty.

Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka enjoyed a rare moment away from caring for their twins to talk football with partygoers, while Spike Lee couldn't hold back his excitement over bringing his son to his first Super Bowl to root for the hometown Giants. But by the time Patriots owner Robert Kraft popped in, he could claim to be in friendly territory, as Erin Andrews and Maria Menounos made it clear they were Pats gals. – Jessica Wedemeyer
