Legends Day Drivers Meeting & Photos

Susan
Legend’s Day is probably the most laid-back day at the track. Once the drivers leave for the parade and the Vintage cars drive around the track there’s not a lot to do. If you want to wander the grounds at IMS, this would be a good day. It’s also a good day to get any of your souvenir purchases or just soak in the ambiance of the track.

I always enjoy taking candid photos of the drivers at the Driver’s Meeting and photos of their families as they leave. We could play a game of “caption this photo.” Enjoy.

    ‘Twas the Night Before Indy

    By Chris Sheridan

    Twas the night before Indy
    And all ’round the track
    Not an engine was purring
    Not even a cat
    The race suits were hung
    By the helmets with care
    In hopes that St. Marmon
    Soon would be there
    The drivers were resting
    All snug in their beds
    While visions of milk bottles
    Danced in their heads
    The Dallaras sat silent
    Awaiting command
    While green, white and checkered flags
    Stood in their stand
    When out on the bricks
    I heard such a clatter
    I headed down pit lane
    To see what’s the matter
    In Gasoline Alley
    I saw such a sight
    ’twas the old Marmon Wasp
    Like a ghost in the night
    With it’s little old driver
    His hair turning grey
    I knew in a moment
    It must be St. Ray
    Like Dan Gurney Eagles
    The other cars came
    He whistled and shouted
    And called them by name
    Now Offy! Now Novi!
    Now Hall’s Chaparral!
    Lolas and Marches
    McLarens and all!
    To the top of the grid
    Along the pit wall
    Drive away! Drive away!
    Drive away all!

    And then on a microphone
    I heard in the night
    A golden-voiced angel
    Who brings such delight
    The Ghost of Tom Carnegie
    With a smile on his face:
    “500 miles to all
    And to all a good race!”

    I recognize Linda Vaughn. I got to have a few conversations with her as I saw her at many races over the years.

  3. Lynn Weinberg Says:

    It’s nice to see Linda Vaughn looking good. I thought I remember hearing within the last year that she was having some health problems.
