I've heard rumblings that another Indy Meet is being requested so maybe we can make this a reality for 2021. It's too late this year to make anything happen so I'll launch a poll later this summer to see which is more desireable, a qualifications weekend or the race weekend. Stay tuned...

I am also interested in an Indy meet. Next year our youngest son graduates high school. As we know, school graduations are pretty close to Memorial Day weekend. If it happens to be race weekend that might put me out. :x

I will have to check and see if I can get time off..........from RETIREMENT to attend. The one “commute” That did not change with our relocation is INDY! To say I’m in is absolute.

I'd certainly consider it. I've never made it to an Indy Meet, but have heard you all rave about it.

Is water wet?
Is the sky (usually, not this time of year...) blue?
Is Ryan's car green?
Is Bob retired?

If the answer to any of those questions is "YES", we'll be there. This time with more tape holding on my roof spoiler, and a keener eye for potholes. :lol:

From the house we're "pending" with to IMS is 4hrs 49min. Drop in the bucket. I've got a pair of checkered seat cushions that have only been used once, sitting in my basement. They should be dusted off!

With the change of ownership of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from the Hulman family to Roger Penske this year, there are multiple changes being made to the facility itself as well as tweaking the schedule for the month of May. I don't know all of the changes but I know that cars will be allowed 45 more HP for qualifying which could push lap speeds into mid-230's. Personally, I woud love to see a new track record. Qualifications weekend is getting some changes to the format to create some additional drama for especially the last row. There will be 75 minutes for a 'last row shootout' for cars on the bubble to battle it out for a spot in the race. As far as the facility, there are some trees in the infield that are being cut down to improve visibility, restrooms are getting a freshening up (it's about time), miles of new fencing to replace the old rusted stuff, widening the space along the west side of the track to include most of the old Georgetown road pavement to improve ingress and egress for fans before and after the race. I think Penske has some big plans and the cash to implement them and I'm excited for it.

As always, I would really like to have the meet on race weekend and have as many that want to, attend the race and maybe even Carb day :shock: on Friday . But, if that can't happen, qualifications weekend provides some good stuff too. I want to see what changes are made this year and evaluate which weekend everyone would want to do next year.

As Keith said, we're in!! Maybe we'll just plan to go a bit slower while we're there to avoid any extra expenses and conversations with the police...other than Sarah and your neighbor :-)
