Former Falcons running back and current limited partner Warrick Dunn has always been a bit of a speedster.

Dunn helped kick off the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series season in the Honda-IZOD "Fastest Seat in Sports" driven by none other than IndyCar legend Mario Andretti (photo above). Dunn and Andretti led the field Sunday to start the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
