This year will be 10 years since I attended the event. Well worth it for anyone thinking about it!

McLaughlin sits on the pole, leading an all Penske top 3. Power 2nd and Newgarden 3rd.

it's on my bucket list, together with a trip to the Jim Beam distillery, a nascar race and WOO sprint car event.
If you don't like my comment, ignore it. If you don't know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.


It has been an interesting year wherein the teams of the series owner were caught being naughty in Round 1 and DQ'd.  How do you punish the owner of the series?  Well, I guess you let him punish his own team.

I just hope this year's 500 doesn't try for the "must end under green" unwritten rule like last year. 

On a sidebar, there looks like some rain in the forecast.  Some media outlets are actually talking that the race might be run on TUESDAY, for Monday looks like a total washout.  This could impact Kyle Larson doing the Indy/NASCAR double.  I can see him playing it by ear, but I am also guessing the 500 will be run at all costs and NASCAR moved to the back burner.

Let's hope for a good one though!

Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Could very well happen, although I think Scott Dixon is already saving fuel!   :D
