Indy 500 Fast Five


It is Indy 500 weekend, one of the best weekends in American Sport.  So here are 5 fast questions! 

1: Have you ever driven over 100 miles per hour? 

2: Drag Racing (the kind done with cars), Like it, Hate It, Don't Understand it? 

3: Ever received a speeding ticket? 

4: Have you ever been to an auto race? 

5: NASCAR or Indy car? 

My Answers: 
1: Have you ever driven over 100 miles per hour? 
  Three times, twice on the autobahn in Germany - legally, once on one of the toll roads around Orlando in an almost new Honda Accord. 

2: Drag Racing (the kind done with cars), Like it, Hate It, Don't Understand it?  
   Drag racing never made sense to me, - why bother - 

3: Ever received a speeding ticket? 
    Nope, have I ever deserved one, see answer #1 above. 

4: Have you ever been to an auto race? 
     I have been to qualifying at Indianapolis twice, I have not been to the race - an adventure I would like to try.  

5: NASCAR or Indy car? 
     Indy car, really any open wheel racing.  

Your answers?

    5. Don't even know the difference. Not sure we even have NASCAR here, although I'm sure the petrol heads here would be quick to tell me all about it.
