(Newser) – Safe to say that race-car driver Scott Dixon had one of the most memorable days of his life on Sunday. Hours after he won the pole position for this weekend's Indianapolis 500, he got robbed in a Taco Bell drive-thru, reports the Indianapolis Star. Police say that Dixon, wife Emma, and former Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti were robbed at gunpoint by two males on foot about 9:40pm while in the drive-thru lane. Police have since arrested two boys, ages 14 and 15. Earlier in the day, Dixon won the pole for the big race, which runs on Sunday. For the record, he was driving a Honda when robbed, per Fox 59.
