Three-time Indianapolis 500 champion Dario Franchitti dropped by the Philadelphia Union's practice session June 24 on his way to testing at Pocono Raceway.
Union defender and auto racing aficionado Ray Gaddis presented Franchitti a team jersey and gave him a few on-field pointers. For the record, Franchitti is a stout Celtic FC fan.
