I was in Indiana that weekend and had some free time so I did stop and see what was going on, or did I? If I am going to be critical of something or someone I thought it best to know what I am talking about. It was interesting and I enjoyed it. I like old Indy cars and motorcycles. Talked to the guy that for what ever reason has cornered the market on the Judd Indy V-8 that truesports tried to run back in the 80s , he had about 4 of them sitting in a garage next to an old march or lola indy car. Its strange what people spend their money on. I also met the people from the Speedway Motors museum, they brought some cars from Nebraska to display , so I will add that to my list of stops next trip out west. There were some other indy cars too, most of them I saw run at the speedway when they were
new. Just another unwanted reminder that the years are passing too quickly. There were also a lot of trans am cars and the now days it seems the unavoidable collection of miatas. But not too many of what you might call traditional vintage cars, maybe 160? So it is not really a vintage race any more , more like an add on to a different kind of an event. But hay, Tony's still has to pay the bills, Right?
And maybe he is, but I would still love to see the balance sheet on his indy race some time. I wonder if he would show it to me if I ask him?
