Indy 500 2009

I first attended the Indianapolis 500 in 1992.  Starting out from western Nebraska on a 1974 Harley Davidson and meeting up with my brother on his motorcycle in Salina, KS, then riding on to Indianapolis for the 500.  we had quite an adventure!!   Once you’ve been there, seen the true speed of the cars, smelled the burnt fuel, and heard the wine of those engines, you can’t watch it on the TV, you gotta go!!  It’s The Greatest Spectacle in Racing!! Making Plans to attend the 100th automobile race at the speedway in may 2011!
