Sato celebrates second ‘500’ win with family here and there

INDIANAPOLIS – Takuma Sato’s rise to Indianapolis Motor Speedway history did not come without significant personal sacrifice. On Sunday, Sato won the Indy 500 driving for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in the No. Sato’s family is able to keep up with every race on the schedule through the NTT INDYCAR Mobile App and other technology. Also, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES races are televised in the United Kingdom, so the Sato family had a variety of ways of following and charting his path to “500” history. “She watched the entire race live until 7 a.m.,” Sato said. “Every single time, Bobby and Mike would ask, ‘When are you coming back?’” Sato recalled. The two work well together and at 43, Sato is getting better with age. That’s because Sato respects his “racing family” so deeply.
