    No doubt I'll be there. That will make 29 in a row for me and 32 overall. I'm hopeful that I'll also make the 100th Indy 500 in 2016.

            2011 will be our 39th consecutive. Race Day at Indianapolis (for the 500) for me is like Christmas Day when I was a kid. I'm nearly 60 and when I walk on to the grounds of the World's Greatest Racecourse, I still get goosebumps. I hope the Old Grey Lady and I will be good friends for decades to come.

                I'm hoping to still be around for my 56th consecutive Indianapolis 500!
                Opening day in May is my Christmas Day!
                Have a very blessed day!

                  Opening Day was my Christmas Day as well until we moved 600+ miles away 2 years ago. While I still look forward to that day, I don't feel the same excitement since I can't be there. At least we can still make Carb. Day and the 500. Next year, we plan to be there for quals, in addition to Carb and Race Day. That is unless my employer has other plans.

                    I stand corrected, the next '500' will be my 33rd overall. My first was the ill-fated 1973 race, then 1975, 1977 and haven't missed one since 1981.

                    Big Wheel - It's hard for me to believe I've been to that many already, I don't consider myself old at all but the stats seem to speak to the contrary. However there are many others here that have a better record than I,...off the top of my head I know PHJ and Roach have me beat by a longshot.

                        I'll be there. I can't wait to see all the special events they line up for this special year. Most of my vacation time at work will be in May...

                          Unfortunately I've misplaced or lost quite a few over the years due to several cross-country moves, marriage, divorce, etc. And not only Indy 500 tickets but many others. In addition many of my Indy 500's through the early-to-middle 1980's were general admission, viewed from the snake-pit or 4th turn infield. Believe it or not there was a time when Indy 500 tickets were hard to come by, and they were expensive too. I did start this album recently of some of my race ticket subs, it's still a work in progress.

                            Probably not as interesting as tickets, but I still have every program from my 39 years of attending the 500.

                              Very impressive! As far as I'm concerned that more interesting than tickets. Again I've misplaced or lost a few but I have most of mine.
