The Brickyard 400; Part 1... Before the Race!

Today saw me travelling to Indianapolis for my 20th Brickyard 400 NASCAR race. I've been going since the 1st race, 20 years ago and haven't missed a year yet.

I was fortunate enough to recive a free ticket this year, thanks to a good friend, which makes attending much easier for this penny-poor teacher.

As usual, I made it there with plenty of time to walk about and enjoy the surroundings. Of course, I headed for the back nine of the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course, which winds its way both inside and outside the track. Be sure to click on the image for the full panorama and you can see the Turn 3 stands on the right.



I ended up at my usual spot, but I soon discovered that it's only half the fun when there's only one. I did make a fine discovery at the bridge however. If you click on the image to enlarge it, look closely downstream, you'll see a lovely Blue Heron, looking for a fine meal.



Looks like he don't like company as he took off when I got near him (I think it was a him).



On the way back to the track, I came across 2 horse power that had left Gasoline Alley.



On the way towards the Pagoda and my seats, I passed through the Mile of Merchandise. At least they're promoting recycling.


Then it was on to the Pagoda and the Yard of Brick, which runs quite a ways into the infield, it seems.


I gots me a hankering for some Crown Royal!!!

Next time, I'll show you some of the technical stuff behind NASCAR and the fun stuff kids and grownups like, including Corvettes!!!
