Heartwarming: Indy Car
  • Many years ago, Tony Kanaan gave a good luck charm to an Ill Girl about to have surgery. In 2013, the now grown and fully recovered girl mailed it back to him, telling him that he needed the luck now and take it to win the Indy 500. He won that year, and when asked about it, pulled the good luck charm out that he had kept in his pocket the entire race.
  • Alex Zanardi's entire career after his double amputation in 2001. Returned to racing, won multiple races in touring cars, then won the New York City Marathon and three Paralympic medals, including two golds, in handcycling. The handcycling events were held at the famous Brands Hatch race course, to make it even more special. To go full circle with Kanaan's long-coming Indy win, during a post-race interview, Zanardi said that he and TK has had a conversation before the race about how if Alex could win the golds, there was no way that Tony couldn't win the 500.
    • And now, in 2014, Alex is going to race in the fastest production-based racecars on the planet in the Blancpain Sprint Series.
