    Wednesday Night at the MOVIES - Now at Dawson's on Main

    October 14th will be our first showing

    We will be looking at the Laydown Sweep from 57-58, one of FIRST TURN Productions creations, plus other short films, since we are starting out on the 14th one will honor the Famous #14. Guess who???

    So come on out and join your fellow lovers of old race history and if your new at it, come on out and learn about the past by taking a look at the bygone days. You will be surprized at what you can learn, every year I learn something new.

    The Flag Room crew is gearing up for our arrival with some drink and food specials this year. So if you enjoy an adult beverage from time to time and good food and old race ovies this is the place for you. Come out and join us for a MID-WEEK Pick UP

    Now that it's on Wednesdays I can attend I believe.
    "I think of Indianapolis every day of the year, every
    hour of the day, and when I sleep, too. Everything I
    ever wanted in my life, I found inside the walls of
    the Indianapolis Motor Speedway."

    Ooh, my knitting group meets on Wednesday nights, but maybe I can alternate. I must be getting old. I never thought I'd be saying "my knitting group"!
    It really IS all good!

    Pretty sure I was the only one there tonight that had never professionally driven, owned, wrenched, or managed a race car.

    Rear engined sprints from 1970's, and the #14 wins again at the '99 Indy 500.

    Thanks, Barb!

    This week we will be showing the History of USAC 50 years

    Great 50 and 60's action, along with some of the current favorites.

    As always we will dig into the archives for a short film from the long ago past to round out the evening.

    In coming weeks we will be showing the Film "To Please a Lady". Our old Hollywood movie nights are always fun, looking into the background to see who we can pick out, and what cars we can find. With the knowledgeble crew that shows up they can usually find a few gems.

    I'll tell ya folks, the boys from First Turn Productions have outdone themselves with the new release we saw tonight, "hot off the press (er, hard drive)".

    If you have been enjoying the Semi official cool old Indy car pics thread , you'll really enjoy the motion picture version.

    Tonight we enjoyed an hour-long digital compilation from fifteen or so home movies in 8mm, Super8, and 16mm formats, presented with excellent sound, narration and sequencing.

    It starts off with Andy Granatelli's appearances beginning in the fifties, and then opens into a comprehensive montage of the 1969 Indianapolis victory.

    Donohue as a rooke. Bud Tinglestad takes over for Al Unser, who had broken hios leg. Mike Mosely's sophomore effort. Lee Roy Yarbrough. Gurney, Ruby, Walkup, Kenyon, McCloskey, Johncock, Foyt, Clark, and Hill, in Lotuses, Brabham-Repcos, Coyote Fords, Eagles, the last of the Novis, and more.

    These are home movies, but well-edited, with rich colors and detail. Really brings the days to life. Interwoven with the stats and commentary you maybe have read about but not experienced

    There's just so much to see and appreciate. A real time capsule It was even more fun watching at The Brickyard with one of Granatelli's crew members in attendance

    Thanks to Brad and John for all the effort. Should be available in time for Christmas

    At HARF's Monte Carlo Night last Saturday, someone brought a First Turn Productions video, only this one featured short tracks from Williams Grove to the late, lamented Ascot. If Barb could get a copy of that one...

    Danny we already have shown that one and First Turn will have part 2 coming out next, I believe after they get the 69 Indy off and running. They literally had just finished the 69 race that afternoon they brought it down for us to view. It was pretty cool they way they pull all the films to gether to tell the story.


    Night before Thanksgiving we are showing one of the classic movies made by Hollywood on racing. We chose "To Please a Lady" with Clark Gable and Barbara Stanwyk. Some of our regulars have out of town guests coming and some are bringing family members, so we thought we would mix it up with racing and a night at the movies.
    Something for those who may not be as into racing as we all are. So come on out and enjoy an evening of friendship and good food in the shadows of the Turn 2 Grandstands of the famed Brickyard.

    I think this is the one I saw a few weeks ago at HARF's Monte Carlo Night. No matter, we're leaving here in a few minutes and hope to be there before the green flag is waved.

    I'd hoped to stop by and get speedwaygirl56, but haven't heard from her since Thanksgiving. Guess I'll bring my wife instead.

    December 16

    I know it is Wednesday AM as I write this, but life has been a little hectic around our household and I have not gotten up on the website till now, Bad Mother Duck Bad Bad.

    This week we are going to open with our continued look back at Historical Wiliams Grove Speedway and then we are going to go with viewers choice. Our group will get to pick the era they want to see.

    Upcoming event Dec 30 we will be showing the Cumming's Story. This is one of the most requested movies we show, so if you ever wondered how did they do that, come on out and see for yourself, this movie takes you from design board, to manufacturing the block, then wind tunnel testing, to the track, very interesting show.

    This is the week we will be showing the Cummins Story, many of you have been asking to see it. Last week we showed "TO Please a LADY" and it has some interesting footage on rebuilding an Offenhauser motor. The Cummins Story is all about building the motor designing the car to go around it, early windtunnel testing.

    Come on out and join us

    Happy New Year to all.

    I was there 12/30 for the Cummins movie. Mother Duck said she would be at the Chili Bowl this weekend. I believe the next movie is Thursday the 21st.
