I don't know how to say it any better than to say "The INDY 500 is life itself". I have always said if GOD created anything better HE kept it for himself. I have attended Indycar races in , ST. LOUIS, NASHVILLE, KENTUCKY, CHICAGO, LAS VEGAS, TEXAS, NEW HAMPSHIRE and POCONO. While they were great they're still not Indy. I can never imagine not being there on RACE DAY. That is Christmas, Thanksgiving and every other holiday in one day. When the checkered flag waves, I'm severely depressed because I know I have to wait another year.
