“People don’t realize how intense IndyCar is,” says 37-year-old Tony Kanaan, one of IndyCar’s most prolific performers, and Luminox timepiece ambassador. “We don’t have power steering. We sit beside two radiators that work at 120 degrees each while wearing a fire suit with three layers and a helmet. And you’re pulling three to four G’s per corner.” Needless to say, physical and mental conditioning are key. Luckily, Kanaan is, in his words, an exercise freak. “If I’m home for seven days, I’m lifting probably every day of the week, apart from one day that I’ll take off,” he says. “I do triathlons as well. I did the Iron Man last year.” And you thought all he did was turn left all day.
