  • Sep 25th: Fan Appreciation Day At IMS??

    Over at IndyCar.com, it says that this Saturday, Sep. 25th, is Fan Appreciation Day from 9-5pm, and some drivers will be there to sign autographs and the like.

    Does anyone know anything about this event, where at the Speedway it'll be, who we can expect to see, if it's ok to bring kids (my 6 year-old daughter), cost (if any), and what activities they have planned?

      I'm not sure--I'm hoping they'll put up info soon!

      If anyone knows anything about it, please share! I'm trying to decide whether to go myself or take the family.

        Per the ad in the Sunday IndyStar - it's at the Brickyard Authentics Gift Shop/Hall of Fame Musemum - select merchandise up to 75% off. Also featuring the simulator & 2010 pace car on display. It does say there will be autographs featuring IZOD IndyCar drivers (no names specified) and Donald Davidson between 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Nothing mentioned about admission - it does say the Coca-Cola Pit Stop will be open between 9 am & 3 p.m with discounted drinks/food. Hope this helps.

          If it's a fan appreciation day, I think it's implied that it's free, and I'm 100% sure you can bring kids.

            Cool, thanks! I guess I'll wait to see if any additional details are forthcoming, such as the drivers appearing.

            I definitely want to meet Donald Davidson. I've been in awe of that great man for some time.

                          That would be pretty awesome. I'm trying to think of what other drivers would be around Indy. Baguette? Who else?

                          Because it bears repeating, Donald Davidson rocks.

                            My daughter was told from someone in the "know" that Sarah and Ed would be there, which makes sense given they live in the area. No other names divulged, except that Helio won't be one of them. Only reason this one was specified is because my daughter is a Helio fanatic...which burst her bubble, LOL.

                              From the 2010 500 program, here are drivers in the "500" drivers section that list their residence as Indy: Baguette, Dixon, Ana, Ed, Conway (sometimes), Sarah, AJIV, Hildebrand, Lloyd, Vitor, Power, Saavedra, and Scheckter (sometimes).

                              Yes, yes he does.
