When I was interviewing for the job which would bring me to Indy one of the things everyone talked about was the race sponsorship.

I wasn’t impressed.  I had never been much of a race fan so it was a big deal for me, until we moved to Indy.  Now I am officially hooked.  I love the sounds and the smells of the track, from the road or the engines to the smell of grease and pork tenderloin.

But mostly, I love racing.   This year was a great race.  It opened with a moving tribute to driver Dan Weldon who died in the Las Vegas race after winning here in Indy.  It was a hot, face race with the lead changing too many times for me to count.   I was sorry to see it end under yellow, but Dario Franchitti earned his place on the bricks.
