20110521-IMS_4428 Living in Indianapolis, a large percentage of people around here live and breathe with the IndyCar racing series. Earlier today, the 2013 series kicked off with the first race of the season in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Since getting introduced to the IndyCar hoopla at the Indianapolis 500 two years ago, I have gotten my interest piqued and have added IndyCar to the list of sports which I (somewhat) follow.

So when I heard the winner of yesterday’s race was Canadian James Hinchcliffe, I knew the name rang a bell. So I did a quick check of my archives from the past two months of May and came up with this shot of his rookie appearance at qualifications for the 2011 Indianapolis 500.

So congratulations go out to Mr. Hinchcliffe for his first IndyCar career win!
