Indy 500 News and Notes

I have come to the legends’ Day autograph session many times. I have never seen this as I walked through the Gate 6 tunnel.

This is the autograph line for Row 9- Herta, McLaughlin , and Castroneves. I had a feeling this group might get more attention than Row 9 usually does, .but I have never seen an autograph line extend down the tunnel before. The sign in the back is the cutoff point, yet fans are lined up behind hoping someone drops out. The other lines were packed as well.
