One wrote and performed "Shout at the Devil." One actually did it.

As celebrities walked the red carpet before the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500, Mötley Crüe rocker Nikki Sixx and Hoosier Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor had an encounter that could only happen at the Indianapolis 500.

After the meeting, Kor, the IPL 500 Festival Parade grand marshal, tweeted to Sixx, asking what she needs to do to become a rock star like bassist and Mötley Crüe's primary songwriter Sixx.

Sixx responded saying Kor, a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp, has been a rock star her entire life.

Kor's son Alex also tweeted a photo of the two on the red carpet.

Kor has met many drivers and celebrities throughout the week leading up to the Indy 500.

And Kor still found time to create the most mom tweet a mom could tweet.

Kor is also the subject of an upcoming documentary by Ted Green Films, Mika Brown and WFYI. It is scheduled to be released in Spring 2018.
