#Toronto IndyCar and NASCAR fans were in for a treat at the Inside Track Canadian Motorsports Expo 2012 with James Hinchcliffe (joined by his family, above) and the NCTS and CASCAR drivers on hand at the International Centre on the final day of the show.

The young driver from Oakville, Ontario - Welcome to Hinchtown!, went from karting, A1 Grand Prix, Firestone Indy Lights and into the IZOD IndyCar Series in 2011 which will see him race with the Andretti Autosport Team in place of Danica Patrick.
