It was a fantastic RACE! Weather was good. Food was outstanding.

There is much to say about the race. But I'll let the Photo's do the talking for me.
Patty sitting in a race ready car before the race. I wont fit in it. You must be under 5'6" tall for this car.

very cool Dom. I was there for the last USGP and it was awesome being at Indy. Great venue and just impressive atmosphere. I loved hearing the cars as soon as you pulled off the interstate.

Cool. You got to see Vito's try at driving backwards on the barrier? I tell myself every year I'm gonna watch it on TV but, I wind up having to do stuff instead.

This is a link to the Photo's of the crash! Take a look at the safer barrier soaking up the blow. Hit the wall at 218 Mph, and live! Amazing !!

A memorable Indy. Danica was the first American driver at the finish and I think this gives her the highest points total of all the American IRL drivers.

Who would have thought.

That's all true! She has become a sweetheart of the fans. Myself included! She drives far better than I thought she would. I would also like to see Sara Fisher get more funding. She also has an abundance of talent. I feel sorry for Milka. She needs to find another series to race in. She did manage to stay out of trouble, but was a hazard on the track. I understand that it did not look like that on TV. However, in person, It became blatantly obvious.

There is some talk and rumors going around that Danica may end up driving for the US Grand Prix team in 2010.

We think that was an effort on her part, to get more money during contract talks. It worked. She stayed. Signed for another 2 years.
