2009 Indy 500 Qualifying

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Mom & I spent the day, Mother’s Day, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway today watching some of the qualifications. The coolest part was seeing about 20 minutes of a Q&A session with Mario Andretti. It was a beautiful day to sit the stands and take in the sights and sounds. Mom enjoys seeing the cars and stars, but would not enjoy all the people on race day, so going during qualifications is a perfect time.

Comcast can’t manage to get me the Versus network (go figure, they own the network) that has the qualifications, so I may well go watch in person again next weekend. The tension on bubble day is always fun to watch on TV, maybe it’ll be good in person too?

Anyways, here is my gallery of a few pictures. A few good ones of Mario and a couple of Helio Castroneves from a distance.
