Default Who wants to meet Hurley Haywood?

I found out where he's going to be this weekend:

Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival


Winning the 24 Hours of Daytona five times, the 24 Hours of LeMans three times, and the 12 Hours of Sebring twice has made Haywood one of the world's most-accomplished drivers. He was the first to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona in the same year. In fact, with a total of ten wins, he has won more endurance classics than anyone else in racing history.

I'm trying to figure out what I might ask him if given the chance.

I do!

I saw him win last weekend. He's the ******' MAN.

Seriously...this guy is still racing after all these years, everywhere he can get seat time...and better yet he's still winning.

What can you ask a guy like that?

1. What do you tell yourself in the morning before you start your day?
2. How do you stay motivated, and how do you set out to accomplish your goals?
3. How do you overcome the fear of failure?
There's all kinds of things to talk about before you ever get to racing...

I'm surprised I haven't seen an autobiography or any books from him. He does a lot of forewords...but haven't seen him author anything yet.

Have fun. When meeting famous people I've found it's best just to say whatever is on the top of your head and be natural. I bet he gets tired of fanbois like me asking all the same dumbass questions about going fast.
