After two years fans get to witness the Indianapolis 500 in person on its proper date. Not everyone who wants to be here will for various reasons, but the 135,00 in attendance are thrilled to return. Let’s hope for a full house in 2022.

Today’s schedule:

Gates open 6 am

The forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s at the start of the race climbing into the upper 60s by the end of the race. It will be about 10 degrees warmer than it was on Friday. It sounds like perfect racing weather.

A late prop bet for gamblers- over/under on how many tears will be shed when Jim Cornelison sings “Back Home Again in Indiana.” My number is 3 million and I’m taking the over.

Enjoy the race.
