Indianapolis 500 POLE DAY
May 18, 2013
Yesterday, Tim, BW and I rode our motorbikes to the
speedway.  Rain was forcast and they didn't want to
get caught in it, so we just rode around the outside
and didn't go in.  However we got to hear the cars.  
We had a good time and made it back to my house
before a torrent of rain fell.

Michie came up with some Hulman Suite tickets for
today.

It rained this morning and qualifying was delayed.

Ron and I drove over to the track after things had
dried out.

Our suite was above Stand C.  There was food (dip,
fried biscuits, beef bar-b-que, and fried chicken.)  
They also had vodka and beer.  I saw a very cool
special edition Fuzzys Vodka bottle.  The inside was
a photo of the speedway.
DAN'S PHOTO JOURNALS
Sorry about these photos.  My niece needed my good
camera for some project and I took my new pocket
camera.  Unfortunately it was set to special effects the
whole day.

We didn't stay in the suite long.  We checked out
some garage/pit passes and headed there.
