Having nothing to do on Saturday evening, I drove out to the Bucc-ee's on I-35 north of Fort Worth. It's across from the speedway. Noticed that there was activity at TMS, gave some thought to going in to see what was up. Didn't. Nothing is scheduled for this time of the year.

Back at home, I figured out that they were finishing up an Indycar race that was rained out a couple of months ago. Watched it on the teevee.

What a wildass ending that thing had. I wish I had gone in now.

Juan Pablo Montoya is going to drive in the Indy 500 this year. Ask a NASCAR fan to name five things about his time there, and they will mention him hitting a jet dryer at the Daytona 500 and it catching on fire.

Fitzgerald Glider Kits is sponsoring Juan Pablo Montoya in the Indy 500, and the owner of the company just intro'd him as "Mr. Jet Dryer."

The 101st Indy 500 was awesome. It was exciting at the first, and exciting at the end.

The crowd wanted Helio Castroneves to win, but Takuma Sato was having none of that. That is Michael Andretti's fifth win as an owner. Sato has long been a punch line for fans: a race is not official until Sato Satos (crashes).

Fernando Alonzo's impressive run was big news, and so was the horrible crash by Scott Dixon. We narrowly missed seeing death there.

I enjoyed seeing Sato win, and I am glad I didn't stay away from this race. No way that tonight's NASCAR race is that good.

For Homer Call of the Week, Dick Hicks nominated the Japanese call of this race. He has a good point.

I went to the my first Indy race at TMS on Saturday. That's good stuff. More pack racing and much more entertaining than the single file NASCAR parade. I'm glad you didn't tell me to stay away.

I dug the one I watched in 96 or 97... I think it might have been the first Indy race at the track ( :bigtime: ). I was kinda disappointed the cars didn't sound like a swarm of bees like it does on the teevees.

Back in the awful days of USENET, a common criticism about those cars was that they sounded like lawn mowers on TV. I thought they sounded more like bees, but what did I know. I figured these people were just haters of the new racing league.

When I made it out to TMS, the first thing I thought was, 'those don't sound anything like fucking lawn mowers.'

The year's Indianapolis 500 will be the 54th year in a row that ABC Sports has broadcast it.

NBC is getting it next year.
