    I will officially be at the 500 this year. It will be my first time going to a big race like this, looking forward to it!

    Thats awesome man. Ive been to three F1 races at Indy but never have got to go to the 500. There is something special about that place and you can feel the history when you are there. Make sure you make it to the museum while you are at the track.

    I'm very excited, I went to college outside of Indianapolis and never made it to the 500 because I was always back in Texas during the race. However, this year I am moving near Chicago and some of my friends will all be there so we are just getting infield tickets and camping out for the weekend. It should be a blast. F1 is my favorite racing event, just because the cars are so amazing. Going to the new track in Austin for the race is on my bucket list. Of course if I made it to a race like Monaco or something that would be out of this world awesome.

    We used to camp out all weekend too. If you are a drinker try to get in the Coke lot if you can, thats where most of the parties are at. Most of the people there go every year and are super cool. The only downside for us was when the race was over driving 10 hours back home after 3 days of having every one you meet giving you food and alcohol.

    If you're an Indy car fan, do yourself a favor and find this book. It's a great read! Two stories/chapters, one about the rocket car on the country road, and the one about the races at Soldier Field in Chicago, are worth the price of admission alone.
