IndyCar driver, Conor Daly, likens a typical race to a fight. The exhaustion of stabilizing your body and the vehicle around a track at 250 MPH is intense. After about 2 hours of this, he’s lost up to 9,000 kcals and 16 lbs of water weight. While the struggle may appear to be purely physical, the real challenge lies in differentiating IndyCar racing with big sports like NASCAR and Formula 1. Conor believes that embracing the social media as a tool for notoriety will help in this cause.
