Taking my son over on Sunday. Really looking forward to the Moto 2 and 3 races.
I'm going, but staying at Mom's. Riding down from Milwaukee Thursday afternoon.
It's a Hoosier thing, you wouldn't understand...
taking the RV
My rain pants do nothing! Guess 8 years or so of use is enough. Time to hit the vendors in Gasoline Alley tomorrow for some new gear.
I drive one of the medical cars.
Get goose bumps every time I go down the main straight.

Moto3 has got the memo... 33 bikes, and 11 rows of 3... only missing the rolling start
Quite a few accidents have happened today for MotoGP. Casey Stoner, Ben Spies, and Nicky Hayden are among them. Sounds like Nicky had a scary one where he lost consciousness.
Spies got back on later, Stoner might have torn ligaments in his hand per the PA, but the Star mentioned his ankle.
From Nicky Hayden on Twitter at 10:42 PM: "Released from the hospital & back at the hotel resting. A head ache & 2 broken bones in my hand but iam ok thanks to everyone for the words"

Bad luck for drivers and fans unlike. You hate to see crashes like that and none of the riders will be fully fit for the race.
just watched the Moto 3 race- very exciting!
does anyone know why they call qualifying sessions "QP"
what does QP stand for?
EDIT: Found the answer; QP = Qualify Practice as opposed to FP (Free Practice)
looking forward to upcoming races- too bad some of the top guys are in bad shape already from the wrecks
I especially want to see the Harley race later in the day- those things are cool looking IMHO

Moto2 was a run away. Hopefully MotoGP is more competitive.
Tried listening to the feed on my scanner. "Big boy bikes"? I think the international feed is on th PA but I can't get it.
As roach said, Moto2 is usually the best race of the week-end normally. Pretty much the real deal these days.
I was quite surprised to see that Pol Espargaro couldn't match Marquez's pace anyway, he dominated most of the sessions this week-end.
