RED BULL INDIANAPOLIS GRAND PRIX
Sunday, Aug 19, 2012
ET & I went and picked up Ron at 10 a.m.
Greg met us there to give us our tickets.

We parked across the street from the speedway for $20.  
BW was waiting on us to get his tickets.  
We got there in time to watch the first race, which was
Moto3.

Greg gave us all $80 tickets in SW Vista, Section 17,
Row L.  Thanks Greg!  He joined us in time for the Moto2
race.

We all brought our own beer and subs.

Absolutely Beautiful Weather today.
This is the view directly in front of our
seats.

I wanted to leave after the MotoGP race
because I'd seen the Harleys yesterday
and they were SO slow.  However, ET
wanted to stay and see the race, so we
did.

And, they were really slow.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of cruisers.  
One reason is because they are so
heavy.
When this rider dumped, he was unable
to pick up the bike!  I laughed my head
off.    (He was a really little guy though.)

We left and Ron rode home with Greg
and Jake.

We had some trouble getting out of the
parking lot due to traffic.  BW was
waiting at my house as he wanted some
of my Kentucky Bourban Beer.  

Julia drove around in my convertible
while BW rode my 64 Vespa, ET took
the  Vespa 300 and I rode my Ducati
Mulitstrada.

ET headed back to Michigan at 6 as he
had to work tomorrow.
Since ET and I walked all over the place
yesterday, we stayed in our seats all day.
Ron stayed wtih us too.

Everyone else took off and walked
around the infield to check out the
sights.  They returned during the MotoGP
race.  

(BW took the last half of these photos.)
I'd never seen hair like this before.
Ron, Lara, BW
Over 65,000 people showed up
today.
At first, Ben Spies was leading this
race.  
His engine blew and Dani Pedrosa went
on to pull out a big 10 second lead and
won the race.

They played the Spain national anthem
and ET and I sang "Spain, spain, spain"
since we didn't know the words nor do
we speak Spanish.



In between the MotoGP race and the
Harley XR1200 race, some trick riders
came out on the track and did some
wheelies and stuff.
In addition to this flyover, some guys later
parachuted out of an airplane.
