A.J. Foyt became a legend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as much for throwing caution to the wind as for becoming the first four-time winner of the Indy 500.

Maybe that's why he's so fond of Takuma Sato.

The Japanese driver is in his first season with Foyt's team and will start on the outside of the sixth row in Sunday's race. And just like the owner of his modest program, Sato has built a rock star following in IndyCar with his dramatic moves, audacious passes and daring mentality.
