To probably noone's surprise, except those who thought GM would bailout on support of the 500 and the speedway in general, IMS named the 2010 Camaro as the official pace car for this year's race. I will try to post a pic of the tricked-out Camaro [I don't care for the graphics, but...] from work as my home computer thinks I am on a different pop server, whatever the hell that means. Anyway, if this Camaro ever makes it to market, it will probably be too late to save GM's bacon in the short term. 8)

I have been in touch with the head man at the Trackside Photo shop at Indy and he is willing to shoot our cars on the track again at this meet. As you will recall, everybody got at least one good shot of their car that did the lap last year, and the prices were relatively cheap. I am still hopeful I can talk them into letting us kiss the bricks at the close of the track lap hour. But that is up to the track people not the photogs. Will be trying to work that. So...if you want to get your car shot crossing the Yard of Bricks get signed up for this meet. 8)

In the event that you cannot make the Club meet on the May 15-17 weekend, I want to keep you informed of another Indy event on Wednesday, May 20, 2009. Here is information on Community Day:

American Family Insurance 500 Festival Community Day

Ever wonder how cool it would be to take a lap around the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Then rev up your engines for the American Family Insurance 500 Festival Community Day and you can do just that! Experience this unique opportunity of taking a lap around the track in your own car before the real race cars hit the track just four days later-at speeds of more than 200 mph!

Experience the one and only day race fans get an up-close insider's view of the legendary raceway. A whole host of activities await you!

Lap the raceway in your own car!
Tour the IRL car transport trailers.
Visit Pit Lane and check out the vintage cars on display.
Get autographs from Pro Series drivers and past champions.

Plus, admission to Community Day includes admission to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum.

We want you at our meet but understand that some cannot make it that weekend. If you can make this day, you can also enjoy a fun event. 8)
