OK folks, this is the last boring post about the Indy 500. I promise. Well, at least until next May. In fact, I’m already counting the days to next years race. Some quick stats, and then the pics:
2nd row – Parked 30 feet from the exit gate in Lot 3G again this year.
$6 – The cost of a Track Tenderloin sandwich at IMS. Worth. every. penny.
35 mpg – Average fuel mileage for my Mazda 6 on the 1,100 mile round trip.
Average Race Speed – 187 mph (a new record)
Number of lead changes during race – 68. (one out of every 3 laps!)
250,000 people – Estimated attendance
68 degrees – temperature at race time (24 degrees cooler than last year)
5 minutes – Time from getting in car, to exiting the lot.
10 hours – Total drive time from Indianapolis to Minneapolis.
