30 Hours

In just 30 hours the green flag waves and the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 is underway. We have waited two years to see the 500 on Memorial Day weekend in person. 30 hours is a piece of cake.

The only thing on the agenda today is the drivers’ meeting at 10 am. it will be streamed on the indycar app. It feels strange not going to the track today. The IMS Museum is open, however.

There is a memorabilia show in Plainfield beginning at 9 am today. I will be there in my never ending quest to obtain the race program for every year since i was born. No thanks, I don’t need the 1911 program.

This morning I am already hearing the prerace soundtrack in my head.”‘On the Banks of the Wabash” is now playing.

Have a safe day, be careful if you are heading to the track tomorrow, and dress warm. My weather app says it will be 62 degrees at the green flag. It could be the coldest 500 since 1992. The difference is it will be warmer and sunnier tomorrow than it was on that miserable day. Tomorrow should also be about 10 degrees warmer than yesterday.
