The 2011 IndyCar Rookie of the Year and Tony Renna Rising Star Award winner is also a fan favorite and was voted IndyCar Favorite Driver of the Year in 2012. The 2017 season marks the 30-year-old’s third consecutive season with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

One of the major turning points of James’s career came in May of 2015, when a part failure on his car sent him into the wall at over 220MPH. The accident severely injured James and left him clinging to life. A miraculous and timely process by the safety team, trauma surgeons, ER doctors and more has led him to a full recovery. He faced, and overcame, a tremendous physical and mental battle because of his motivation and determination.

As one of today's top motivational speakers, Hinchliffe's presentations are not just inspiring and thought-provoking but are also filled with lessons on teamwork and leadership. Read Less ^
