This is my second year going to the race and Tony's third. He hasn't yet convinced me that it's a good idea to camp out the night before but this year we are cooking breakfast on his brother's camp stove. Also cooking something after the race I think. Might as well eat while we are waiting the 2 hours to get out of the parking lot!
It was SOOOO much easier getting ready for the race when we lived in Indy. Besides that we knew what was going on at the track each day (FW sports doesn't think it's important), we didn't have to get up race day @ 4 am. Yes 4AM!!! I will definitely be sleeping in the car, as will my sister I'm sure! Maybe in a few years we will move back and truly appreciate how awesome it is to live closer to the track.
I am looking forward to my second race (and watching Tony Kanaan win this year!). It's a fun time and so interesting to watch all the people who are there. Last year a family from Italy was sitting in front of us. And of course, all the silly drunk people.
So look for us sitting behind Pit Row on Race Day. We'll be the ones eating yummy homemade turkey sandwiches during the race!
