Thanks for posting the Indy 500 schedule, Fernando.

I'm there early in the morning, rain or shine....most probably rain. I've been there everyday this month working in the media center. I certainly hope we don't have to go an extra day to get the race in Monday.

No rain dances, please. :)

I didn't know the military bombed the track prior to the Indy race :)
I'm busy getting the pool online for the evil grandkids. Of course, the real race starts at 5:30...
