Do you know who that is? No?
That's Tony Kanaan. The driver of the Indy car that Bryant sponsors. And he came to have dinner with us. (That other dude works for Bryant). How cool is that? He even took a picture of us and tweeted it. I felt special (even though you can't see me at all in his picture) I was hoping to get my pic with him and his autograph, but unfortunately he had to leave early and I didn't get it.
That night we also got to have our picture taken with the official race car,
and we also had our caricatures drawn:
What do you think? I really appreciate that the artist chose to point out the giant zit on my chin that I'd been sporting all weekend.
This artist was a little nicer, I think. And he reminded me of Bobby from the Brady Bunch. I think it was him. Seriously.
It makes C look like Luke Wilson. Something about the eyebrows.
After dinner they had a 50's bop dance, because they were celebrating 50 years of Bryant sponsoring Indy racing. We didn't dress up, but here are some pics.
Saturday, we got to go to the track, and go in the pits with the crews. They had pit crews there practicing for the big day. It was kind of fun to watch them do it over and over. Here's a video. I paid attention to the time. 15 seconds. Better keep practicing!
Here are some pics from Saturday's events. We walked around, got lots of free stuff, and checked out the Indy racing Hall of Fame museum. There were lots of cars in there. Who'da thought?
Here a giant statue. What is Troy doing under there? And what am I pointing at? Hanging out with these guys all weekend brings out the worst in me....
The next Danica Patrick? p.s. this is actually Danica's car. I think from last year or something
This little beauty is called the "Mormon Meteor" because it's speed was tested in the Utah Salt Flats.
On the way back from the track, Troy sweet talked our bus driver into dropping us off at the Lucas Oil Stadium. That's the new field where the Indianapolis Colts play. So, we took a tour.
It was pretty cool, but I'll admit, it would've been cooler to watch an actual game.
Yes, this is their carpet. Kind of cool.
C in the locker room.
Me on the field.
I'll post about the race later. As of right now, I've been writing/posting pictures all morning, and I've got to get my laundry done and house clean.
