From mountain biking to surfing, I was lucky enough to have adventures waiting for me right outside my front door. The rush of catching a wave or finally reaching the top of a challenging bike trail is something I’ve always enjoyed.

I worked my way up through the ranks of racing and now compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series, the premier level of open-wheel racing in North America. You’ve probably heard of the Indianapolis 500, a race held at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway, right?
