To honour Tony Kanaan’s 23rd and final season in open-wheel racing, IndyCar’s YouTube channel is showing the 2004 Chevy 500. The tar of the show was Sparky, Texas Motor Speedway’s anthropomorphic spark plug mascot. Retired for 10 years now, Sparky was a joy to see!

Like Tricky (Pocono) and the Firehawk (Firestone) these mascots were so common back in the day and made victory lane a little more fun.
