That Time My Dad And I Rode In A Car With The Guy That Won The Indy 500

Hot lap with Juan Pablo Montoya.

There is nothing like a long weekend to dust off the old blog. Sunday was the 99th running of the Indy 500. I spent the day building a tree house with my brother and father. While relaxing after a day of pulling siding up with ropes, my father informed me that Juan Pablo Montoya had won the race. Way back on July 26th, 2012 my father and I were afforded the opportunity to sit in the back seat of a car that Mr. Montoya was driving… with one hand on the wheel… at top speed… while casually discussing the standard features of the car (AC and satellite radio)… around the very same track. It was awesome, and here are the pictures and a video to prove it.

Places I Go: Indianapolis Motor Speedway

For the past few years I have been fortunate enough to see the Indianapolis 500 from many different angles. I’ve been to the race twice, viewed the track from the radio tower, toured the pits, toured the garage, and been sunburned more times than I can count. It is an Indianapolis tradition, and below are some photos from this year’s trips downtown and to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the team at Raidious.
