Morning Mindbender for Thursday 5/24/18
Tony Kannan, who is sponsored this year by Big Machine Vodka, won the Indy 500 in 2013 and the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2015 but he finished 1487th in this race in 2011 that took him 12 hours and 52 minutes to complete.
The Ironman Triathlon
Tony is not just an athlete behind the wheel, he’s also an athlete on land, eater and a bike! He participated in and finished the Ironman Triathlon in 2011. That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile marathon to wrap things up. Not quite 500 miles but pretty impressive! How do you think Tony will do this Sunday in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Penn Grade Motor Oil?
