Where did you sit for the 200? I was there as well, was with my wife, baby and some friends hanging out mostly on the bleachers at the west horseshoe.

What part of Indiana are you in because it is absolutely beautimus here in Indy...cloudy but warm. Of course, the next few days will be gloomy and cold again.

Ha, I just noticed this thread was in the classifieds, maybe a mod will move this thread for you if you PM one and ask.......

I think you were watching from what they call THE horseshoe. We were in the WEST horseshoe at the end of the straight as the bikes went by you from right to left we were at the far left end of that straight.

I thought the racing was great but the freakin delays ruined it for us. We have gone several times and this was the first time since my daughter was born. She is one and she was starting to get antsy, it was a long day for her. I think next year we will get a baby sitter. In the past it's been my wife and I with some friends and we spend the day buzzing all over on the pit bikes. We have friends that race the 200 and they get us pit bike passes every year so we can get in the pits with the bikes. It's the only way to go to the race. The place is so huge, you end up missing half of the race if you have to walk everywhere to get a couple of different views of the race.


Oh ya, to post a picture you have to put it on a host website like photobucket then the host will generate a link. When you post that link in a thread it will show as the picture. Sometimes the host website will have different options for the size of the picture as well. Let me know if you need help. You can email me the pictures and I'll post them for you if you want.

Sounds like you all had a great time. Let me know if you get to come down next year. I'll send you a Private Message about how to insert a picture under your user name. Don't forget to check your private messages though!..lol

(Although, I've changed mine a few times and it is still the stupid picture of the hole in my leathers that someone took after I crashed a few years ago. So I may not be the best help. Even I'm tired of looking at it.)
