Met Dan, the morning of his 2nd Indy win, in the William Rast garage. I knew I would be meeting him, so I had my opening comment scripted thusly:

"Nice to meet you. My name is Daniel, too. I also race karts, and I also drive an Arrow."

When I said that to him, he replied, with his British accent, "Aw, man, I just switched to Tonykaht."

Doh!

(When I switched to Tonykart, I bought a used one with a Lionheart sticker already affixed to the front faring. Odd.)

I later watched him win the race from the William Rast suite in T2, joined in during the celebration in Victory Lane, and later joined the team for another celebration that night at the Capitol Grill in downtown Indy.

He was a good friend of my brother-in-law, who was the only non-family member, non-race car driver who served as a pallbearer at his funeral.

RIP, Lionheart
