If you’re in the camp that thinks racecar drivers aren’t athletes, you need to have a chat with NASCAR’s Corey LaJoie. Controlling his Mustang through extreme g-forces on hot blacktop can make him lose up to 12 pounds in a single race, and it’s led to the muscles on his left side growing bigger than the ones on his right. If all that isn’t enough to deal with—not to mention the ever-present threat of crashing into a barricade—he has to bear the mantle of being a LaJoie, and carrying on the winning legacy of his legendary father (Randy) and grandfather (Don).

LaJoie came to Onnit to talk about how racecar drivers have discovered fitness, what it feels like to be in a wreck, and the charity he’s raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for (Samaritan’s Feet).
