Race fans have a unique opportunity to ask questions to two Indianapolis Motor Speedway legends – Rick Mears and Jimmie Johnson – during a live video chat Thursday, June 10 from IMS.

Four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Mears and three-time Brickyard 400 winner Johnson will answer fan questions together from 4:45-5:15 p.m. (ET). Fans are encouraged to submit questions in advance at the IMS Twitter feed, @IndyTalk or www.twitter.com/IndyTalk.

Johnson has cited fellow Californian Mears as one of his racing idols, as both started their auto racing careers in off-road racing before moving to asphalt. Johnson will attempt to join Mears as a four-time winner at IMS on July 25 in the Brickyard 400, which he won in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
