Arrived back home here in Illinois earlier this afternoon and immediately had to take a shower and a nap as I was worn out, but sure had some time.
This was my fourth trip to the Indianapolis 500, that Carl Fisher track he developed to test cars back in their early days, even before he came up with the ideas for the Lincoln Highway, Dixie Highway and Miami Beach.
The old boy's legacy could not be in better hands and more loved by the thousands who were there this past weekend. We pitched camp, well TV, at the American legion Post # 500 (good name) on Friday, and I saw lots of familiar faces. Right next to us was an RV loaded with three generations of one family, some of whom had driven here from California and Utah.
Yes, the Indy 500 is good cause for a good party, but also an opportunity for families and friends to get together.
More to Come. --RoadDog
