Other Little Things…
Okay, it’s time to take a short break from Alaska…
That’s not the only thing I’ve experienced in the past year. For instance, back on Memorial Day weekend I had the privilege to cover the 2016 Indianapolis 500. This is the 7th 500 that I have photographed for Mike Curb, one of the car owners.
I was there in 2011 when Dan Wheldon, driving the Curb #98 won on the 100th Anniversary of the 500. This year was the 100th ‘running’ of the race…(there were several years skipped on account of such things as World Wars…)
The significance of this year’s race, besides being the 100th running is that we won again!
Alexander Rossi, a rookie, took the checkered flag on a brilliant fuel strategy by Bryan Herta…team owner. After Rossi crossed the finish line, he didn’t even have enough fuel left to make a full Victory lap.
Oh, and there were at least 350,000 people in attendance.
