The Indy 500

Marco Andretti practicing for the 2007 Indiana...

The Indy 500. I never miss it. There is nothing like being at the track. The sense of history is amazing. People say it isn’t what it used to be when Emmo and Little Al battled it out. Probably so. Remember Danny Sullivan’s spin and win? Remarkable. No Danica this year. Pit stops. Side by side in the corners. Penske. Gannassi. Andretti. Sunoco. Chevrolet. Honda. Cold beer!

It is the greatest spectacle in motorsports. My other favorites are the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, LeMan, Daytona 500, and of course The Monaco GP.

Great to watch. Turn up the sound. Wish I was there today!
