Indy 500: 2014 Trip-- Part 2: Setting Up

Once on I-65 in Indiana, I saw a sign reading "Hell Is Real."

On arriving at the American Legion Speedway Post 500, we were shown to our spot, which was about three rows in from the street that runs by the track.  The famous Pagoda top could be seen close by.  It would be hard to get a better parking spot than this.

As we were setting up, we heard the song "I Can't Drive 55" from the track PA system.  A very fitting song what with us being where we were.  Of course, they like to say that at the Speedway, the speed limit is "241."

We immediately cracked open some celebratory drinks as we had arrived for yet another Indy 500.  For me, it was my third.  Sue and Paul have been coming since 1999 (and used to stay at hotels before they got their RV).
