From the may 25, 2016, Indianapolis NUVO Newspaper "500 facts About the Indy 500.
"Facts, stats and recaps you can use to impress your friends before the 100th running of the Indy 500.
"Here's the problem with any undertaking that purports to include as much material as we've tried to wedge into these pages (17 pages unless I missed my count): something will always be missing.
"Your favorite factoid or bit o' trivia may have been passed by as we assembled this behemoth of a list. When you think about it, we could have built 500 Facts around just one race if we'd wanted to, but we tried to give an overview of the size and scope of the Indy 500 -- and the drama and danger too."
One Big Undertaking!! --RoadDog
