That is THE race I have to watch start to finish every year, either on tv or in person.
Also had the radio on so I can hear coverage during tv commercials.....Paul Page and Kenny Brack were guest commentators for the radio coverage on FM.
That was one of the better Indy 500s. Pretty crazy how Penske & Ganassi ended up wrong on their strategies.
Dan Wheldon got 2.6 million, purse was over 13 million.
The closing laps of 2006 were awesome, and so was the 2005 Indy 500.
1999 was my favorite because it was the 1st time that I got to see AJ Foyt in victory lane for that race (I wasn't even a year old when he won his 4th)
1985 was pretty exciting with Danny Sullivan spinning and continues on and catches Mario
1989 was a thriller too, with Al Jr & Fittipaldi there at the end, and little Al crashing on the North end.
1992 was cool too when Al Jr won a close one vs. Scott Goodyear.
1995 was funny cause Penske, in a final effort, bought a couple machines from Bobby Rahal, and still couldn't qualify for the race with 2 drivers that had won the race twice already.
The last 2 years were pretty predictable, but a lot of times the track has a mind of it's own and likes to mix things up a bit.
Do something with your life and go get me a beer.
