Today is a day for reunions with friends and to scout viewing spots for tomorow’s race if you have a flex ticket. If this your first time at the track since 2019, take some time to notice the improvements Roger Penske has made. They are noticeable and impressive.

I will post brief reports on session results and have a full wrap up later tonight. Enjoy the day;.

  1. Matthew’s last day of school so he can’t ditch the whole day but we hope to arrive before qualifying. Can’t wait to be back. Boys and I will have Charlie Browns on Sunday for a delayed Mother’s Day breakfast. See you soon!
