Now, if you've never visited the Hall of Fame Museum located on the inside of Turn Two of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, better known as the Indy 500 track, do yourself a favor and go! At $5.00, it's a bargin and we had time to kill and neither of us had ever been in it during any of our previous sojourns to the track prior to the race.
The museum is filled with all things Indy 500, and a bit more. Here we see the first winning car from the first Indy 500, driven by Ray Harroun (with a relief driver named Cyrus Patschke); it's a Marmon Wasp.
I love the rear view mirror on this beast!
There were rows upon rows of cars, all of whom were Indy 500 winners.
They even had a display of old motorcycles, which makes sense now that they have motorcycle races at the track.
We thought better of it and turned back to find our seats. Why tempt the racing gods this year?
When next I blog, I'll talk about the run-up to the race and the race itself. it was a magnificant day all around!!!
