We arrived in Indianapolis Wednesday and the town was buzzing ! Record crowds were expected and an announcement was made that the race tickets were sold out for the first time in the history of the track. With that announcement the local TV ban was lifted for the 1st time in 66 years.
We had a non stop week with Carb Day Friday where we watched the final 500 practice, Indy Lights racing, team pit competitions, and ended the night with a Journey concert.
Saturday continued with the 500 Parade where crowds were around 300,000 and then we rested up for the Blake Shelton Concert at the track.
With crowds of 350,000 expected for race day and since Fred was so successful as Sleepybear security the Indiana State Police tried to recruit Fred to work the race.
Race day Sunday was crazy – the crowds and characters were amazing. Nancy made some new friends.
Next up -I am dragging Fred to Amana Colonies in Amana Iowa, which is the home of one of the longest lived communal society which began in 1714 in the villages of Germany……. Whoo Hoo!
