Ill admit I have been a NASCAR downer but I went this weekend and had a freakin fantastic time! Got onto pit row before the race and that was insane.

If you go, you definitely have to camp for the weekend. Great experience!


Not really a "race" fab. But rest assured it is one of the biggest and best parties that you will experience.

It is tailgating on steroids.

I think most people here can make a left turn.


It's not as easy as you think it is.

Reed got the player wrong? Wow :lol:

Other than the fact that both are huge, Lotulelei and Short look nothing alike.

FYI: The link no longer works. I guess they pulled the story when they figured out it massive screwup.

"I know the Indy 500 is big and I've been there, but I think this has got it beat right now," said Lotulelei, a native of Tonga.

 

yeah when i originally saw that line it kind of had me wondering what a guy presumably living in salt lake city was doing in indianapolis.

 

since this was apparently a boilermaker it makes more sense.

 

that sucks though.  the new guy was putting himself out there and trying to connect with the locals only for the biggest newspaper in the city to completely screw the pooch.

Reed isn't with The Observer. He works for the Associated Press, which actually makes it worse.

I thought that was a mistake, that it was Kawann.  Star said this much in the this is gross podcast.  AP reporter kept refering to Kawann as Star and he kept correcting him.  Then AP reporter walked off saying "Thanks Star".

 

 

Edit nevermind I see I was beat to the punch
