It’s a Different May 1

I have never been less excited about May 1 than I am today. Until 1974, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway opened for 500 mile race practice on this day. I was always excited to see who was the first car on track. After the time to prepare for the 500 was shortened, May 1 still meant that the time for the greatest race in the world was approaching. I still hung my flag up this morning, as did many others. It’s still May, dang it.


I hope that the race can be run in August with fans. As I stated earlier, I’d rather the 500 be postponed until next year if fans can’t attend.
