Two hours on I-74 and two miles on foot brought us to our seats near turn 1 at the 2008 Indy 500. It’s true, what they claim, the thing is pure spectacle. How can it not be with 300,000 seats in the place? Most of the drama happened in the pit, what with the likes of Slash, Florence Henderson and Julianna Hough to imbue the place with celebrity status. Then of course, the lap after lap of yellow flags, and DANICA!!! getting out of her car to beat the shit out of the guy who hit her. The dude who won got almost 3million $$. I’m seriously thinking of turning in my Vandorens for a helmet and a pit crew.
