After being saddled with more than her share of pigs in IndyCar racing, Sarah Fisher apparently decided to climb aboard something that at least had some towing power.This is actually a savvy move on Fisher's part, as Tombi is the next logical step in the current "race to make fuel" strategy sweeping the IRL. He uses no ethanol, requires no tire changes, and is unsurpassed at defending track position. Plus, he's got huge sidepods for sponsors. Win-win-win.
She recently took a trip aboard Tombi, a 31-year-old, 14,000-pound African elephant, as part of the Indianapolis Zoo's elephant awareness days.
"She races at over 200 miles per hour and she was scared to ride on an Elephant that doesn’t even go 30 mph,” joked Tombi’s trainer."
