Geez, hard to believe he is still driving let alone winning at Indy.

He was one of my favourites back when I was into racing.

I'd be like, "fine, Helio you can race. And, oh by the way, we don't have any pit crew scheduled so you'll have to fuel your own car and change the tires during the pits stops. But I assume you're down with that..."

believe it or not - this has happened before.  Morgan Shepherd was his own pit crew during a truck race at Kentucky in 2001.

In 2001, Morgan raced in primarily in the truck series but was entered in the Daytona 500. While in trucks, he performed one of the coolest stunts by a driver in hopes of attracting a sponsor. In a race at Kentucky, Morgan performed a pit stop as a one man pit crew. He got out of his truck, changed tires, filled it with gas, and sat on the pit wall eating a bag of chips and drinking a soda before returning to the race.
