In 2005, we were on the track in the morning before the 500. Tom was getting out of one of those antique cars they parade around, and he slipped and fell. He was going down hard, but we were standing right there. My friend Bill Kief literally caught him in his arms and saved him from a complete face-plant.

Tom staggered to his feet, brushed himself off and looked at Bill like he saved his life. He couldn't have been more appreciative. What a peach of a guy. There will never be another Tom Carnegie.
