I have been going to the "Indy 500" for years but missed going this year. Had to watch it on TV and what a great race it was.
In the early 1970s I met some individuals (from Crawfordsville & Indianapolis, IN) that became close friends and they had connections to the track owners & drivers. Since then have had super tickets and the opportunity to work at some of the other races there too.
This is my all time favorite sporting event ... any other "Indy 500" junkies out there ?
