Born this day in 1972 the friendly Canadian driver is always fun to talk with. He has 4 Indy 500 starts including the pole in 2011. He has led 22 laps and his best finish is 10th in 2010.
Happy Birthday Sarah! Who can’t be happy for this driver/Car owner? Always popular, won poles and I’ll say this about Sarah Fisher. Anyone who wins a USAC National Midget Race on the high banks at Winchester Speedway is a hell of a driver.

I’m very fortunate to say I know both Donald Davidson and the late Tom Carnegie. BTW: Tom is wearing a “Indianapolis 500 Oldtimers Club” hat. As a media member you can […]
