I started watching the Indianapolis 500 as a teenager, I have missed only a couple of them, I even hid a small television in a bottom desk drawer a couple of times when I had to work on race day. The race is normally Memorial Day weekend, the last weekend in May. This year it is delayed to August 23rd. Let's hope by then there is a safe crowd in the stands.
I have never been there for the race, I have gone twice for qualifying weekends. It is truly amazing to watch the cars go by at over 200 miles per hour. I am ready and waiting for the greatest spectacle in racing.
