Olympic swimmer Tyler Clary has a passion for going fast.
In the 2012 London Olympics, he won swimming gold in the 200-meter backstroke, passing favorite Ryan Lochte and Japan’s Ryosuke Irie late in the race. His time of 1 minute, 53.41 seconds was the fastest in Olympic history.
Tuesday, Clary will be trying to go fast in a totally different venue. He will race in the Summer Shootout series at Charlotte Motor Speedway, driving a Legends car, a 125-horsepower vehicle that can reach speeds of up to 100 mph.
