I have been thinking of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this week as I have been teaching virtually in Indianapolis.
Of course this has made my mind wander to memories of the Indianapolis 500.
My furthest back clear memory of the race was visiting my great aunt Esther and that her husband Walter was all excited about the race. We were able to watch part of the race with him. The memory is a clear one, and I can even remember the book that I was reading that weekend. I don’t remember the exact year, but it was probably when I was about 7 or 8.
I do have another great memory of the speedway. Back in 2009 I visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with my friend David who lives not far from the speedway.
We also went on a tour of the infield of the track. Unfortunately there were cars on the track so we were not able to visit the starting line or walk out on the track. We were not even allowed to leave the bus.
Overall it was a nice visit to the track. Especially as both David and I took a lot of pictures.
Have you ever been to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway?
