INDY 500 Pits and more

One thing on every car guys list has to be a trip to the Indy 500. It may not be the spectacle it once was but it is still something you have to do at least once. With the merger of the two open wheel series and the win by Danica Patrick I am sure every year will get better until it is back to its full glory. Watch out NASCAR!

Here are some photos from our last trip to the 500 in 2007.


This is what they all want…the Borg Warner Trophy. When you actually stand next to this and study the likenesses of all the winners on the trophy it is humbling.


This is the way it use to be. Women weren’t even allowed in the pit then.


Today it is a little higher tech around the garage!



Another Unser! Big Al won 4, then there was Little Al (maybe he had 4 DUIs). Is Unser III destined to be Tiny Al or Littlest Al? How about Three-peate Al?


There were very long lines for all autographs!!!

How about Camping at the Track?


Some race fans just take it all with them. When you go to the races the trip is not complete without a tour of the camping areas.


This may be old but it is no collector car!


At the track but just like home.
