“Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi will return to his hometown of Nevada City on Sept. 11 for its annual Constitution Day Parade,” as the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

“Organizers have been in touch with Rossi’s management since the 24-year-old driver pulled off his upset win. When he crossed the finish line of the Memorial Day race, he became the first American-born rookie to win at Indianapolis since 1928.
