When I sat down with Danny Sullivan to interview him for my ESPN.com feature on the 25th anniversary of his legendary 1985 "Spin and Win" Indy 500 victory, it was in a hotel restaurant in Uptown Charlotte.

As I mention in the story, few people in the lobby recognized the man who used to be the most recognizable face in American open wheel racing.


This is an interesting take on what can happen to a racing career. To read it, you must be an ESPN Insider. Dive in -- or become one.
