The 99th Running of the Indy 500

Thanks to my friend Barry, I got to cross-off a bucket-list item this past weekend....   attending the Indy 500!!  It is difficult to appreciate how big the track is..... and how HUGE the crowd is... 250,000 people.  Amazing!

Here are our tickets.  We had the best seats in the house.


The cars were close enough that it seemed like you could reach out and touch them.


We were across from the pagoda on the start/finish line.  And had full-view of the pits.



The track just seemed to go on forever......


And here's the start:

Reminiscing

I was watching TV not too long ago, and a show about the Greatrace was on......


Third place.... not too shabby!
