The Indy 500 is a race that is run every Memorial Day weekend in Speedway Indiana.
They come for the thrills of the race, for the roar of the engines, for the air and for the background of the event and they come in droves, since the racetrack can hold upwards of 300,000 people.
If you live near Indiana it’s easy to take in the event annually, but if you do when you can charter a jet to get you there do you fly commercial? It’s cheaper than you may realize and it saves the hassles of flying commercial such as the long security lines and the cramped seating. Instead, sit back, relax and enjoy all of the elbow, shoulder, head and leg room that you get while you are chilling with your celebration on route.
It is not easy to win the Indy 500 that starts with eleven rows of three to make up the 33 car field. Three drivers hold the title of wins at Indy with four . Rick Mears holds the record this time for the most pole positions. The great owner Roger Penske is the most successful at Indy, with 16 wins and 17 poles for his drivers.
It’s also difficult to get on a flight, not if you enjoy room and simplicity that is. The 1 thing that the Indy 500 and flights have in common is milk. You can get milk and you’re given a bottle of milk in the winners circle if you win at Indy. This tradition began back in 1933 after winning the race with Rat Control, when a driver asked for milk. A dairy executive saw a marketing edge there and well, the rest is history. If you win you are given the choice of whole, skim or 2% milk to chug for the entire world.
Like the ones before have bee the next Indy promises to be an exciting race
