|Indy 500 - 2nd Day of Qualifying
Sunday May 13th 2007
Blue skies and sunny weather got
temperatures up to 72° F, after a
cool night that dipped into the 40's.
I took my 11 y/o niece to the track today.
We parked in the 3rd Turn Infield and
caught a tram to the Pagoda.
We received several free things today:
IRL poster, IRL stickers, DVD of Indy 500
'moments', and a IndyCar Driver trading
There was face painting for the kids
as well as jump ropes and hoola-hoops
in the plaza.
A DJ spun some music from the Coke
I showed my niece the Alley Cats and
explained that those guys were so
dangerous, they had to be caged!
What do you get when you combine
old bikers and hip hop?
Beer belly Bling!
We explored along the front straight and
watched some qualifying.
We saw Sarah Fisher qualify with a 4-lap
average of 221.960 mph.
We walked over to the museum where we
saw some kids playing in the fountain.
A big display on AJ Foyt was in the parking
lot and included his 1977 Coyote IndyCar.
We went to the gift store and my niece
picked out a Danica shirt and hat and I
picked out a mother's day gift for my mom.
We went to the 3rd Turn grassy hill and had
a picnic and played catch and watched the
cars practice. We had a good time.
It was a beautiful day.
