Walking Around The Grounds
The Rookies have just taken the track for the IZOD Indy Car Series. We’ve been walking around the grounds taking it all in. The sun comes out occasionally and turns things hot. Otherwise, there are some ominous clouds hanging around just waiting to dump water on us. Hopefully, it’ll hold off until tonight.
As much as it has become a joke, this is really a beautiful facility. It is absolutely first-class. As nice as it was last year, they have made many improvements. In the fan zone area, last year the walk-way was in the dirt and straw. This year, it is smooth concrete.
There are a few new paint jobs this weekend. Dario is in the Clorox car, Helio is in the AAA car and Ryan Briscoe is in a yellow & white Penske Truck Rental car.
It’s about time for practice, so here are a few pics. check back later.
