Is that all?
Is that all?
Ain't engine competition grand?
so it should be like last year?
Investing in one of those fancy cooling shirts the guys in CART used to wear this year...do drivers still wear those things?

I suffered in the 93 degree heat at Indy but when I got home it was 93 and comfortable but then this is a dry heat.
All roads lead to Indy except for State Road 39 which goes to Martinsville.
According to the movie Back To The Future, weren't we supposed to be able to control the weather by now?
Once the drought kicked in, we got some of that there dry heat right here in Ioway. 103-105° with 17-18% humidity. You could breath it but it still felt hot. Normally that level of heat in the Midwest feels like a sauna. This year it felt like a pizza oven.
You really dont notice the heat until it gets over 105 or so.
92 is a good day for a streunous hike in the mountains in a dry heat .
Meanwhile 82 is too hot to cut the lawn here in South Carolina if the humidity is on the high end
That being said, 116 in a dry heat is still rough!
I was dreading race day this yeat but once I got to my seat I was pleased to find a wonderful breeze blowing right in my face and Sunday turned out to be the most pleasant day of the week
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
so was '12 a record or not for the 500?
it seems like right after the race they said it didn't break the 1939(?) heat record and then later someplace else I read that it did
