|Indianapolis 500 POLE DAY
May 18, 2013
Yesterday, Tim, BW and I rode our motorbikes to the speedway.
Rain was forecast 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. 4.5 minute Video of Ride
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 cool special edition Fuzzy's Vodka bottle - there was a photo of the speedway on the inside.
Fuzzy's is a sponsor.
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.

Due to the rain, qualifying was extended.
The Fast 9 qualifying was supposed to run from 4:30-6pm but instead started at 6:30.
We didn't stay in the suite long. We checked out some garage/pit passes and headed there.
