Sage Karam has two loves — wrestling and racing. While his senior year on the mats at traditionally tough Nazareth Area (Pa.) High School didn't go as he wanted, Karam accomplished the first goal in his dream, racing at the Indianapolis 500.

The 19-year-old didn't just race at the historic Brickyard, he finished ninth. Normally not happy with a ninth-place finish, Karam was satisfied because it was his first Indy 500, a race he'd dreamed about winning since he first attended the race 11 years ago.

Karam talks about what it was like to go through the qualifying process, having a makeshift senior prom in the garage at the track and what his overall experience at the Indy 500 was like.

Karam has a bright future ahead of him on the track and he breaks it all down in episode 63 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast. Even country music icon Reba McIntyre thinks so!
