Everybody loves the Mayor of Hinchtown, but not everyone knows the story of his upbringing in Canada, the unique challenges and recognition he faced in school, the interesting racing contract made with his parents, the long gestation period spent in racing’s minor leagues, and how his first Verizon IndyCar Series opportunity nearly collapsed.

Part 1 concludes with a heartfelt look into taking the seat meant for the late Dan Wheldon in 2012, and Part 2, set to cover his rise to IndyCar stardom, passion for sports car racing, that starring appearance on Dancing with the Stars, and serving an extra parent and landlord to fellow IndyCar driver Conor Daly is coming soon.
