So like I said, I decided this was the year to jump on the bandwagon as far as becoming a fan of the Indy500. We decided on Thursday night and found some tickets on Craigslist (which is always an experience). I was soooo thankful that our seats ended up being in the shade. It was so hot (apparently we set a record that day for hottest race in recorded history).
We made sure we put on a ton of sunscreen (we were already burnt from the parade the day before). The straightaway was packed full of people. Here’s our shot at the starting line.
And here come the cars!
We actually rode our bikes to the race and packed a lot of food and drinks. We were set in the shade with our picnic, and had a great time. I even had a Motor Speedway hat to wear!
