i know this picture isn't very exciting, but i wanted to capture just how vast this track was. however, this is only a small corner of the track. there were 350,000 spectators and the track is 2 1/2 miles long. that's 200 laps...which is a very long time....especially when it's the hottest day on record for the Indy 500. we did sit directly across from David Letterman...but could only see him through binoculars. it was quite the experience.
