Well, the good folks over at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway invited me once again to attend the Indy 500 (I couldn’t make it last year), and were kind enough to give me full press credentials so that I can take all the photos I want and bring you guys the inside story behind the worldâ€™s largest single-day spectator sporting event.
I Could Use Some Help!
First of all, have any of you been to the Indy 500, or for that matter any of the other
NASCARIRL (Indy Racing League) races? If so, I could use all the advice you can give! I’ve never been to one of these events, which is crazy considering what a car guy I am.
- I’m scared of competing with 250,000 people for parking on race day! I do have a special parking pass but just the sheer madness of getting in could be frustrating. Any tips?
- How close can you get if you park in the infield?
- What should I bring with me to the event?
- Anything in particular you’d like me to try and do / see / photo / interview while I’m there?
The route I’m taking up from Dallas will be through St. Louis, where I plan to visit some friends and also try and get some good shots of the Arch.
I haven’t decided if I’m coming back the same way or if I’ll head down through Tennessee yet. So if anyone has suggestions on things I should definitely see between Dallas and Indy please share those with me so I can try and figure out if I need to change the route to accomodate.
Looking forward to your advice and feedback!
