First, take a trip with Los Angeles local and Team Barracuda’s Austin Dyne. Starting in his hometown Malibu and cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway, Austin talks to Kristen Kenney about his surfing background and what makes him unique in his family.

He was a spectator (with racing legend Mario Andretti) at four-time champion Jeff Gordon’s final Cup race as a full-time in the 2015 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In 2011, Hamilton swapped cars with three-time champion Tony Stewart at Watkins Glen International.
Having rubbed shoulders with other racing greats so often, it only would be fitting if Hamilton — who is one victory from tying Michael Schumacher’s career record and also could tie the F1 record with a seventh championship this season — spent some time with the greatest basketball player of all time.
