We are four hours away from race time. There s a fairly decent crowd here already. Currently on track Indy Lights is 13 laps into their 75 lap race. A caution is out for a spin by Toby Sowery. Rinus VeeKay leads.
I arrived at the track around 1 pm. The paddock was empty and all the equipment was under cover. The tires emitted that distinct rubber smell. The silence was eerie. Activity soon picked up and the track regained its usual energy.
I took some time to get a close look at the vintage cars. It was a trip down memory lane. Here are some photos. I did see ALL of these cars race, but I did see a lot of them on track.
I am still looking for the Stanley Cup. That is my next mission. I will try to post again just before the race, but will definitely have Quick Thoughts up tonight.
