How do you stay active?
Outdoor activities such as biking, running and/or exploring. 

What’s your go-to healthy snack?

What does a race day meal look like?
Something plain that can't upset my stomach that has good carbohydrates and a little protein, so maybe pasta and chicken.

Nap before the race.

What’s your favorite thing about the Indy 500?
The size and scale of the race. It's shocking!
