Ian says he met Jodi in the bank that she was a teller at 4 and a half years ago.

"I thought she looked like Jamie Lee Curtis and told her so," he told BuzzFeed, which is smooth as heck.

This past Sunday, an hour or so before the cars started their engines, fans signing the track were witnesses to the first big surprise of the race.
