|Indy 500 - Practice
Wednesday May 16th 2007
Cloudy and cool with much wind today.
Brian and I scored Turn 2 Suite passes.
This was my first time in these suites - the oldest suites at IMS. There are
4 levels, 3 that are above the track, and we were on level 3.
These seats are incredible! You practically hang over the track and I dare
say these are the best seats I've ever had. You're so close you have to wear
earplugs when there is just one car on the track!
The suite was catered and provided beer. They also gave us some garage/pit
passes for an hour or two.
After returning to the suites, I accidentally erased the card in my camera.
losing all my photos. Luckily Brian was there taking photos and I will present
those for you.
All of the stands on the south side of the track were closed. We sat in the
Turn 2 Infield viewing hill for awhile before we left.

We started to leave at 4pm and we heard the thump as Jimmy Kite smacked
the wall. All we saw though was smoke.
I believe the driver is watching a tv
I was standing behind Wheldon when Brian
took this photo. I was surprised to see
Roberto Moreno walk up. As he walked by, he
pinched Wheldon on the butt as he was signing
autograaphs. Pretty funny.
