This is actually a busy weekend for us.

Tonight, if the weather holds out, I think we're going to the Indians game. (The Indianapolis Indians are the AAA team for the Pittsburgh Pirates.) It's Friday Night Fireworks. Plus their games are cool because the field is right downtown, great views of the city. (Sports Illustrated called it the best minor league ballpark in America.)

Tomorrow is the NASCAR Nationwide race at Indianapolis Raceway Park. First time we'll have gone to that one. It'll be Riley's first race.

Then Sunday, the BRICKYARD! at IMS.

Gotta get my ******* on this weekend. :p

busy weekend here too. We're doing major weeding (all the rain has made our yard a jungle) and getting some exterior painting done before the new siding is put in. :)

Way Cool! How's the visibility at IMS? Pocono is only about 50 minutes from us, but we won't go because you can't see much.

Obviously. LOL Sorry, Amy, I couldn't resist!

Tomorrow we're going to a Welcome Home parade for the National Guard troops that came home last month. Not sure what we're doing after that, tho. I'd kind of like to take a ride over to the balloon fest, but who knows. Ken is still working on the shed, so I guess it depends on how far along he is.

Sunday is race day, so I'll be in front of the TV, probably screaming at the inabilty of whoever sings the National Anthem and the (lack of) fly over coverage.

You can't see the whole track. There are grandstands and a lot of "stuff" in the middle that blocks you from seeing the opposite side. Where we sit (outside turn 1) we can see everything from turn 4 to coming out of turn 2 and going into the backstretch. We can't see the backstretch, turn 3 or the the short chute between 3 and 4. There are big screens inside the turns so you can see what you're missing.

I still wouldn't miss it though. There's nothing like the roar of those engines.
