Indy 500's Carb Day-- Part 1: When a Carb is Not a Carb
From the May 25, 2018, Indianapolis Star "Why it's called Carb Day when Indy cars don't use carburetors" by Dawn Mitchell.
Carb Day at the Indy 500 is on the Friday before the race and is not about loading up on pasta, well perhaps the carbs in those beers. It is actually about the race cars, but has grown into something a whole lot bigger.
We've been to the last three Carb Days, now that the folks I go with are retired from teaching. And, we had to overcome the objection of one person, but she now loves it. This is a fun-filled day, costs $30 and is worth every bit of it in my estimation.
But, you do know that those race cars that will be tooling around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday in the Indy 500 do not have carburetors anymore.
