May in Indy

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 11:49 am

How can you be an Indy Car fan and not want to spend most of the month of May at the track? I now live and work on the east coast, and I will only make it on weekends and race week. It needs to be every day!

Yesterday’s action saw Paul Tracy right up to 223 out of the box, a pink car with Alex Lloyd, the return of a Purex livery for D & R, an unveiling of a Rahal-Letterman car with a throwback Gurney paint job and more.

It would be good to be out there NOW. 

What are we waiting for?



  1. I was there monday to eat lunch at the concession stand at the museum. I was there yesterday for lunch hour to watch the IndyLights. If it doesn’t rain by noon, I will be there today for as long as my wife lets me!

  2. Taking a look at the live video feed, it is May in Indy for sure. Clouds and water as far as the eye can see. I choose to see it as retaliation from the Speedway gods for scheduling Opening Day on a weekday when few people can go.

    That said, I am positively giddy. Can’t wait to hit the grounds on the 10th!

  5. I won’t be there and I doubt many others will either. The month of May as we once knew it is dead. It is just a small gathering of Tony bootlickers who go and talk about the past, which is all the Indy 500 has left. They still have Donald Davidson talk about worthless facts on the radio every night, and a few other “traditions” they try and hang onto. I can hardly wait to hear Donald tell everyone how many opening days were rained out and which years they were in. Oh, the drama………NOT.
    Editor’s note: We probably won’t miss you. When will your angst extend to a cessation of commenting about it almost every day? Unless you are a hypocrite you would probably stop if you actually feel the way you say you do. Sadly, that type of juvenile delinquency is typical of your ilk. My advice: Grow up and find something else to be a ‘fan’ of. You have shown consistently that you are not a racing fan and have no idea what Indy is actually all about.

  6. Hey Troy M, thanks for paying attention. You and your parody site retards are actually a pretty good news source. Once a person gets past the predictable third grade behavior and deplorable grammar skills there’s some good reporting there. By the way, I hate U2, hip hop, and ‘rap’ but I’ve never wasted one millisecond on any website obsessing about it. Trust me, the act is old, tired, and should be retired. You ‘tards aren’t adding anything new and different. Remember, they’re not laughing WITH you, they’re laughing AT you.

  7. I guess one needs to agree with you to be considered a “racing fan” in your book. I used to love the Indy 500. Right up until 1996 when TG started a pointless war with an established, successful series. It lost its magic then and there when he used the 500 as a weapon. The following years of complete arrogance and lack of negotiation completely killed off the sport.
    Editor’s note: Would it be possible for you to refrain from making any sort of comment until your maturity level increases?
