If you are watching at home today please feel free to add some useful comments for the half million of us who are at the speedway. We don't have internet access or Jack Arute moments, but we're still enjoying the sunshine.

    Hey Jeff, thanks for all the news and stories from Indy. Enjoy the race! We're all envious. I'll look for a guy on TV wearing a t-shirt that says "Unprofessional Word Butcher." :-)

    P3, P4, and I are here, at home, watching and wishing we were right there with you and P1 and P2. Just saw Roth hit the wall about the same place as Rahal, as well as the fire in Foyt's car. I'll be thinking of y'all whenever anyone talks about "debris" on the know I long for those days of Bobby Unser in the booth, annoying us all. ;-) Enjoy and take some pictures! We will be there with you next year!!

    Hope you enjoyed yourself in Indy. We had a great time at the race. Great weather, fans and drama. Too bad what happened to TK. I imagine he and Marco will be chatting. Thoroughly enjoyed the pit drama between Daniker and Briscoe Inferno. Congrats to Dixon. What a cool customer.

    I was sitting right by where Marty Roth slid to a stop after hitting the wall. I finally have a way to identify my seats on TV.

    Congrats to Dixon. Another great Indy 500. Here's hoping we keep the winner around for next year. Kind of a weird race, but still enjoyable. The weather combined with the relative lack of experience of the field played right into Iceman's hands. I've never heard so many people predict a winner correctly before, but I still loved every minute of it. The Kanaan-Fisher interviews were great television. Compelling stuff.
