    I was never into racing until I got together with my better half. We were living in California at the time. She had grown up in Indiana and with the race and told me what I was missing. To make her happy, she took me to my first race, this thing called the Indy 500. Sure, I had heard about it somewhere, but never followed it.

    Well now, we show up at this place called the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and my jaw hit the ground. It was HUGE! I'd had only seen local dirt tracks as I passed them by headed somewhere else. So the scale of this place was mind blowing. So off we wander to cover the grounds and see the sites. They had Turn 1 open for people to wander out onto the turn and front straight. I felt like a giddy school boy being someplace I shouldn't be. Snapping pictures, just feeling the energy of the place. THOUSANDS of people everywhere. Eventually we wandered off to our seats in Turn 3.

    The place was electric and you could feel it building as the festivities really got rolling. Finally, the roar of the engines starting and then as they passed by on the warm up laps. How, were those beats load or what? Then the green flag drops and those drivers were accelerating, jocking for position, making passes, all at 200+ mph!

    That was the day I got hooked on open wheel racing. When it was time for us to leave Calif, a major part of moving to Indy was to be here for the Month of May. Since then, we've hit other IndyCar races at other tracks and intend to get to more tracks in the future. Its really fun to take someone along for their first race and just watch them get caught up in the excitement and to develop a deep-down love for the sport.

    I'm grateful to my better-half for introducing me to IndyCar and we get a kick out of sharing great times together. We watch for the enjoyment and bonding it brings us. Sure, things go wrong that we might disagree with, but still, a bad race day is better than any off-season day. Drivers, Start your Engines...
