The Fastest Race in the World: Indy 500

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a great weekend and for those lucky folks on summer vacation, are enjoying your time off! This weekend was a relaxing one and I spent time with my Mom and Grandma, and went to see the best movie on Friday night. Although I love my chick flicks, I also absolutely love foreign films and was excited to see the French film, The Intouchables. Based on a true story, the film chronicles a wealthy quadriplegic man who hires a man from the streets to be his caretaker. You’ll have to see the film to truly understand how captivating and powerful it is, but I thought the movie tagline was especially poignant “Sometimes you have to reach into someone else’s world to find what’s missing in your own.” I 100% recommend this movie!

I realized this weekend as I was relaxing, that I never told you about my very busy weekend when I went to the Indy 500! It was an even more amazing experience than I ever could have expected. Rather than write you a novel about it, I think I’ll show you some pictures (and captions) instead.

Downtown Indianapolis– there was a great chocolate shop around the corner from this beautiful monument!

My favorite driver, Marco Andretti who lead the most laps in the Indy 500 the next day, but sadly crashed in the final laps.

The Target dog, Bullseye! Target sponsors Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, the top 2 finishers in the Indy 500.

In an actual INDY car!

The racing fam with our special-access passes

We were on the edge of our seats for almost all 500 laps– this really is the most exciting race!

The pictures can’t possibly convey the amazing experience it was going to the Indy 500 with my parents. We had an absolutely fantastic time and memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Now I’m hoping to attend the Sonoma Grand Prix to see all my favorite drivers race again!

Questions:

-Do you like foreign films? What’s your favorite movie genre?

-What type of sporting events do you like to attend? Do you favorite teams/players/drivers?
