Default "Live" from Indy! 2010

Well, we are not quite there yet. We spent the night at Walmart in Columbus, IN after we talked with Mike and Paula and found that there wasn't anymore room at the track. They should have opened the gates for staging a few minutes ago, so maybe the first rush will be over. We should be there within the hour. I have some more pics to put on the Bowling Green thread after we get parked.

More later!!

We are here!!! The Greatest Show on Earth! We are #74 and just pulled straight in and parked out in the grass. It is hot here and muggy. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

We did not see any police until we got into Indy. There were 2 that had a semi and the other a car pulled over. We did see some state police when we got off on Crawfordsville Road, but they were just sitting. Do be careful of the speed limit on 465. There is construction and the speed limit is 45. They were not working on the road, so traffic was moving fine.

Well, Larry is cooking us a pizza on the grill, so after we eat, I will see who is here. Al Provoast is here, towing Patrick Downing's car. Thanks Al and Bev for the tomatoes and other veggies. Homegrown!!

More later.

well my indy 2010 starts off on a sour note as the transmission went out in the nitro lounge, its a turbo 400 so anybody that can help me out rebuilding it in the pit would be much appreseated , biggest thing is getting it there. I'm at the 104 mile marker in a home depot parking lot, my dad went on to the track to get roger Weavers truck and hook on to the trailer, mean time im changing fluided and filter and letting it cool down hoping i can labor it into the track. hopefully it works.

Well there are now around 170 rigs in staging. Supposedly we are to begin parking at 8 in the morning. They are already parking in the other field to the back now. Here are a couple of pics from this afternoon.

Larry, Chuck Rayburn, a SS/AH guy, and Jerry Davis


Jim & Mary Hale. He says this is his last Indy. He is calling it quits at the end of the year.
