The Fast Nine has now been set for the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500. More on that in a minute, but I have some really important news to report. The old-school classic Jumbo Tenderloin at the track has been located. It took a total of four days at the track over two weekends, but I finally found a concession stand under the Paddock stands, near Section 7. One the old Grill 33 sells them for $9. That’s a hefty jump from the 2013 price of $6, but is well worth it.

Susan got good news at the walk-in clinic in Speedway. Nothing is broken, but she has a condition called costochondritis, which is an inflammation of the rib cartilage, caused by the blow she received last week. She got a shot of Toradol and a prescription for turbocharged ibuprofen and was sent on her way.
Welcome to a cloudy and slightly cool Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The temperature is currently 68-degrees, but it feels a little cooler than that. I was thinking the weather was to be a little sunnier and warmer than this, but it should make for perfect conditions for speed.
This morning, we head up to Indianapolis for our second of three consecutive weekends at IMS. Last week, we froze at the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

Most of you that have followed this site very long know that I’ve never hidden the fact that I’m not a huge fan of Mark Miles, who seems to hold several titles within his organization – Chairman of the Board of Hulman & Company, Chairman of Hulman Motorsports and IndyCar CEO. I’m sure his organizational skills are impeccable and he probably does an excellent job with his top-priority assignment from the Hulman-George family – improve the bottom line.
