Cool Visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Wow, I just returned back to Missouri for work and was gone 2 weeks for a trip out to Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio. The last place we stopped was the Indianapolis motor speedway. So I have some photo's to share.

Most likely I was. We were in Dayton, Ohio and went to the Airforce Museum I got some great photo's there and then went to Indianapolis, just driving down I-70, then some where along the way I think I saw a Muncie sign? But I can't recall for sure. I was with Mrs. Bickerson and that was not a fun time, she is always being bossy.

We traveled to Pittsburg, PA, my wife had a convention there. (non-political)
This buddy of mine and his wife drove out too. They took the southern route and stopped at Indy first, they took the track tour and the Race car ride-along thing was there and they did that too.
On the way back we drove the southern route and stopped at Indy.
At the behest of my wife we did the track tour. She usually will go thru a wineing maneuver to keep form even getting close to this stuff. I think she could be ill???
This is a Daily event and they do one about ever hour and a half, you get out at the finish line and can kiss the Bricks if you want.
Kind of like this photo. I have the museum photo's that I will put up as well.
Very interesting stuff.
I was trying to get back up and the asphalt was hot?
