Here we are again, the month of May—warmer weather for all of us who live where winter reigns king.

May also is the month when two of the holy grails of racing are run, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.

May has been very good for this NASCAR driver, well let me qualify that statement, except in NASCAR.

This fifth month of the calender year has brought this stock car driver wins in both the Indianapolis 500 and arguably the most prized win in racing, the Monaco Grand Prix.

The third race of this mythical holy grail of racing is said (by so called experts) to be the 24 hours of Le Mans, I happen to think it is the Daytona 500.

If this stock driver can someday win the Daytona 500, one can actually say, who cares if he wins a championship or not.

If he is in a room full of racer and they are just sitting around telling old war stories, even if the greatest driver ever Michael Schumacker is in the room.

This NASCAR driver can always say: "Hey Shumy , have you ever won the Indianapolis 500? Ahhh well, ahh no. Well then Shumy have you ever won the Daytona 500? Ah don't know that one."

"Well I also won the the 24 hours of Daytona Shumy. I don't know that one other. So what you telling me Shumy is that you won only Monaco and thus just one of the three races in the holy grail, I in turn, have won all three plus the Daytona 24. True?"

What else could Shummy say?

But yea...well he could say: "I'm a billionaire," and that would be true, Shumy is the only driver ever to hit the billion dollar mark in earnings. Holy bank mobile Batman!

The point is, that winning those three races would give anyone bragging rights forever, one could certainly hold their heads up high among three- and seven-peats.

Agree?

Who is this stock car driver?

Well you'll just have to figure that out yourself.
