  • Indy's 100th this May

    Aloha Indy-Race-Fan,,,

    That is remarkable,,, no wonder you have such great insight,
    as a Indy 500 fan...

    My enthusiasm for Indy Car has died, I am sure of that now... Years
    gone by, when I would attend some "Short Tract Event", I could wonder,
    will I ever see this unnamed hero, at the Speedway someday... Those
    days are dead... Now, today I can only hope this "un-named hero" might
    make the "Big Time", at some place called Daytona...

    The "product" is so bad today, the talent pool so shallow, the cars
    so uneventful, I just don't care anymore... But still, I hang on...
    It's like watching a dear friend, with a terminal case... Just waiting
    for some devine miracle, I just can't pull the plug,,, not yet...

    Right now, all that remains, are a few dear memories with little, or
    no hope, for a positive out come... But, I shall keep my previous
    enthusiasm, as a cherished memory, of better times...

    ie: IBR vs IFR....

    Indy Before Roger vs Indy After Roger...

    Indy Fan,,, that's some record,,,

    Aloha 1953 Man,,,

    That's very impressive,,, some of you have been great fans...
    I really do wish I could still be a fan, but I just can't at the
    present time... As a kid, I would listen to every Indy 500 on
    Radio Keen, with Sid Collins... I would have to pull our
    family car out of the grage, and down to the middle of a cow
    pasture, a half-mile from the house... It was the only way to
    get radio Keen to come in.... Radio Keen wouldn't play on the
    house radio...

    Some times my Dad had to fly in the morning, when the race
    started, but at some time, before the race would end, he'd land
    that old N3N, taxi up to "his" car, cut the mix, climb out
    of his old crop-duster, get in the car with me, and then listen
    to the end of the race, with his son...


    OH NO,,, Jimmy J, just took the checkers at the Monster
    Mile,,, What a talented driver, and team... This was a good show,
    it's just great entertainment... Later today, the "Digger's"...

      I have missed only one Indy since 1956.
      That should make about 53....

      I don't have any fabulous insights. I just love the race, the people,
      the tremendous noise 300,000 people don't make when taps is played, the noise of thirty three...
      the friends we have made at Indy over the years, The colors, the flyover,Jim Philipe's prose,........
      It's all good...

        Lord willing, the 100th running of the 500 will be my next and final race there.

              My plan is that I will attend the 100th, have no plans for another.
              If it weren't for the United States military,
              there'd be NO United States of America.

                well i never say never.......... but am thinkin that it may be just as well to make the trip and spend the actual ticket money on partying with my friends and family.

                i mean the races leading up to THE RACE: terre haute usac sprints, fairgrounds usac silver crown, and the little 500 usac sprints are great shows to see RACING at..

                but getting to visit with friends and family makes the trip worthwhile.

                  all of you except zoom are nuts....i'll be going forever, never to miss another even if someday they run a deltawing or whatever. all my family knows my love for being there in may. if i were on life support, they would push me in there and park me only to leave when it's all done each day.

                      I'm nuts too, just in a slightly different way
