EXCLUSIVE: Taking some hot laps for the Indy 500
guys, Guys, GUYS!
I had the most awesome experience last week. I was invited by Firestone Tires and Firestone Racing for a media preview of the Indy 500!So I went to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a full day of adventure...including a few hot laps around the track with racing legend Mario Andretti!
You know that I can show you better than tell you...so check out the video below.
If you didn't already know... I'm a gear-head, mostly about NASCAR, but there's four things that I learned about IndyCar on this trip:
1. rain or shine (except for storms) they're ready to go, go, go on the track
2. drivers, no matter retired (like 76 year-old Mario Andretti) will always like to drive
3. Harvey Firestone (the founder of Firestone) used to hang out and have camping trips with Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
4. and on Sunday May 29th, 2016 will be the 100th running of the Indy 500.
And guess what, guys?
I'll be there courtesy of Firestone!
