          Doctorindy: You have Saturday the 7th listed twice for this year's podcasts. The Sachs/Fabi/Linden/etc show was last night's.
          RIP Daniel Clive Wheldon, 2005 & 2011 Indianapolis 500 Champion

            Also, the "All Night Race Party" replays the night before the race are scheduled to be 1946 and 1979.

              I love the story Donald told of the gent giving Tony Hulman tips with the command to start your engines. Sure wish we could find someone to step into their shoes and do it right again. Regards, Ernest

                If anyone is interested, the latest MoreFrontWing.com podcast also has an extensive segment (about 40 minutes) with Donald. In it, we talk about how the 500 grew in stature to be the biggest race in the world so quickly, why the original 4 IMS owners (and Rickenbacker) got away from the business and driver profiles for Frank Lockhart, Billy Arnold, and Bill Cummins.

                You can find the podcast here: http://morefrontwing.com/2011/05/11/...st-episode-42/

                Different men, from vastly different backgrounds, focused on the same goal – a white line painted on a yard of brick 500 miles ahead.

                          So May 17th is Dave from Marion's birthday...

                          Kevin said they have over 100 emails worth of questions...they "won't get to all of them."

                            I've updated 2011 through yesterday...there are only 3 episodes remaining, if you don't count Sunday's post-race wrap-up/nostalgia 'variety' show.

                            I'm also going to do a quick recap of the 1070 Centennial Celebration Episodes. They are going to play them Saturday as a marathon I think starting at 2 pm. Frankly, (considering all the things going on Saturday) I can't think of anything more boring to do that sit and listen to ten hours of people talking about people talking the 500, but it is a pretty decent program they've put together.

                              At long last the 2011 shows are updated. No podcast posted though for the race day post-race show.

                                You might consider posting the 2011 ep guide, and other years, as separate threads in the nostalgia forum. I posted the 2008 guide there as a separate thread and a couple of people said it was useful.
