Indy 500 ~ Opening Day
Sunday May 9, 2004
I awoke as the F1 Spanish GP was ending, so I rewound the tape and watched it.
Consequently, I had to skip opening day ceremonies. I got to the speedway and out to
the end of pit lane 1 minute before the cars rolled out for the first time in May!
I traveled
light today.
Please
excuse the
photos - I
took my
pocket
camera
instead of my
big guy.
Indy
Chopper
built this
bike for the
Indy 500
winner.
They will
make some
more so that
you can
have one
too.
Not a race
fan but
dragged to
the track?
Well then
come over
here to the
stage and
listen to some
live music.
The 2004
Pacecar.
(Why isn't it
the new
Vette?)
Sarah was the first
driver on the track on
opening day! As usual,
today was Mother's
Day. Sarah's mom
waved the green flag
to start the practice
session today. I bought
my mom a
multi-colored track
umbrella at the
speedway today for
Mother's day.
It appears
Marty Roth is
still looking for
that elusive
sponsor.
Where's
the Jaeger?
Scott
Dixon -
the 2003
IRL
Champion
Dan
Wheldon -
This young
Brit is the
current IRL
Points
Leader
I was trying to
snap a picture
of the front of
this car, when
this kid walked
into the picture.
Probably the
best picture I
took all day! :-)
It was a
beautiful sunny
day. I think the
temperature
rose to 90
degrees! After
the cold spring
we've had, I'm
looking forward
to a nice May.
