Pole Day in '10 - wished like hell we were there for the race this year - and

Hi Dan, absolutely loved your pics of the whole month... really.
But especially liked the pics of the track after the race. Kinda eerie and
sad,but very Cool.
I sat in the first turn E penthouse seats....also very cool. Keep up the
From: Brent N. from South Bend, IN
just came across your web site today. almost every year , i either just go in
the infield or find tickets outside the track early on race day.
I decided to look into buying ahead of time this year.
I had same seats for 10 years (top row in south vista), but in 2003 , i
moved to kentucky ; left it in the hands of my niece to renew after they
attended the 03 race , then they didnt have to pay me , just renew to keep
the seats. well , of course , you know whats comin...she did not renew ,
so i was screwed.
i've since moved BACK HOME AGAIN IN INDIANA ! lol
Anyway , just wanted to let you know , i've been sitting here for hours today
trying to figure out where to sit. your site has been a HUGE help. its really
an awsome site. i've put it in my favorites. i've never seen a site like it. it
should be mandatory reading for everybody that goes to the race. it has all
the info anybody could want...outstanding job , thank-you very much !
From: Rick C. from Bayville NJ
the site is very well put together. Nice work.
From: Dan L. from Indy
Dan, I've used your site for seating info for several years, but only tonight got
a chance to explore your site more carefully. Love your photo log! I've been
around the track all my life in some form, and still attend every year. I
especially loved your 1977 work since I graduated from High school that
year. I don't remember much .. but I remember enough. The snake pit was
crazy indeed. Everyone from my Highs school (Howe) played hooky and
went to the track. It is a big event today .. but was alone in its class back
then! My dad took me to the track many times before I was in high school.
He didn't have enough money to buy seats ... so we took our van and
parked in the infield. I got to see the ones we all remember .. AJ Foyt
Bobby and Al Unser Mario ... I was there to enjoy the unique era .. .
fantastic racers and rock music at its finest. Now my 8 year old is a car
fanatic, and we attend every year.
Okay thanks for your response . . . . I appreciate how busy you are,
especially a week before Indy! Exciting day today, wasn't it?! WOW!!
Love your site. I've been going back through your stories in the Journal
section. . . . wonderful and funny and interesting. Thanks for sharing all
that. And THANKS for doing the website . . . it's a great service to so
many of us race fans!

and i found your advice about the speedway-- what to bring, etc. very
I am truly impressed with your website. It is so simple and friendly to get
your information. It presents so many answers that I want to know about but
didn't think to ask. Like the helmet laws, parking etc. Very comprehensive.
Great layout easy to use. Laid out from the users perspective ie "what they
want to know about" not "here's what I'm gonna tell them" perspective.
You guys nailed it! Pass this up and down the ladder great job guys.
Heh heh, there's nobody else, just me.
From: Andy B from Madison AL
I really like the site. Nice reference material.

Just found your website. Just wanted to tell you thanks. An awesome site
indeed, very helpful. My wife and I are going to the 500 next year and your
website has helped greatly. I will be living the dream I had since I was a kid
in the sixties to go to the greatest race in the world for the first time. And
thanks to you, I feel I will be making a lot of good decisions on how to do
just that. So just wanted to tell you thanks Dan, I appreciate the help.
From: Preston S. from Shenandoah VA
Thanks again for this wonderful website. The info here helped my son and I

time after being a fan for 41 years. My 13 year old son is going with me.
This site has made planning so much easier. You've obviously devoted a
lot of time to this site and just wanted to let you know how useful its been.
We've got our seats and can't wait for race day. Thanks again for all your
Great site. I've been going to indy almost every year since 88' and you've
hit the nail on the head on just about everything. Thanks for building this for
the newcomers and the super Indy fans too.
From: Mark S.
I would like to thank you for your excellent info on seating at Indy. Your info
and the layout is great!
I really like your Indy Speedway website and found it most helpful. I recently
moved to Indianapolis so my dad, brother, and nephew are coming from
CA to visit me and go to the Indy 500. I went to the track today and ordered
tickets. We will be sitting in a handicapped area at the Paddock, and have
nearby parking. My dad is in his 80's and we will have a wheelchair for him.
Anyway, we have enjoyed your website and it helped us get oriented and
plan our special day. What a great resource for us and others.
