Upon graduation, Bruce entered the USAF and flew A-10’s and AWACS in the UK before retiring in the late eighties. He is currently living in Memphis, where he is a Captain for FedEx flying the A300. Bruce brings the perspective of the more casual fan. Bruce finally attended his first Indianapolis 500 in 2011.
