It’s time for the best thing about Memorial Day … the Indianapolis 500. I may be a bigger stock car fan than I am an open wheel fan, but I grew up near Dayton, Ohio, and that’s just a stone’s throw from Indy. I’ve been to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but never on raceday. One of these years, I will make it. I remember Unser Jr. and Goodyear … Mears … Rahal … Foyt … Fittipaldi.
I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it, even with the CART/IRL split.
Gasoline Alley, baby.
Oh, and I don’t know ’bout y’all, but the first thing I thought about when I heard about this bridge collapse and having a second bridge being hit was, “Hmmmm, that’s an interesting terrorist tactic.” I’m hoping like hell that it’s just a hellishly bad accident.
