Feeling the Heat at IMS

When I think of the GMR Grand Prix, it conjures up a lot a lot of images of cold damp days. I don’t know whey, because I think it’s only been really chilly here only twice for the Grand Prix since it started running in 2014.

There have probably been a lot warmer days than chilly days, but the cool days stand out. We don’t have to worry about getting frostbite this weekend. As I type, my phone says it is currently 86° in Speedway. It felt even hotter than that when I was out there in it. There is no breeze and it is humid. Suffice it to say, it’s hot!

I imagine it’s going to be tough to set cars up for a hot slick track for qualifying this afternoon. The good thing is that qualifying takes place about the same time of day as Saturday’s race will – so it should translate over. That is, if the rain holds off. Right now, the forecast calls for a 70% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon.

Am I complaining? No. I’m at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May, and I’m watching race cars. Life is good.

Check back here after qualifying, and I’ll have a wrap-up as well as an update on the annual tenderloin stand search.

    The tenderloin search is one of my favorite May traditions. Though, it does seem like since Mr. Penske took over the good tenderloins are found at the majority of the concessions stands. I’ll be getting one from the big concession behind the Pagoda tomorrow, hopefully they don’t disappoint.

    and, thanks to
    Brandon, hungry.
