Arie Luyendyk and Oriol Servia at the Rev benefit gala. I told Luyendyk that the year he won his first Indy 500 (1990, the fastest 500 for 23 years), he was too fast and didn't give my friends and I time to drink enough. He laughed, and I turned to Sevia and said "I work the races now and can't drink during them, but I wish you the same result this year." MORE REV PARTY PHOTOS
