Indy 500

first_imgThis weekend is the annual Indianapolis 500.  Unless you like Indy car racing, I would be willing to bet that you can’t name 10 drivers in this years field.  It sure wasn’t that way 30 years ago.  In those days, the whole month of May this race was the focus of most sports programs not only in the United States but around the world.   Today you are lucky if it appears in anything besides the Indianapolis Star and the Indianapolis Media.Where are the Foyts, Unsers, Andretti’s (there is Marco who is still racing), Mears, etc.?  I haven’t looked at the complete list for this year, but when I glanced at it there were only about 5 names that I knew.I will still watch it on Sunday, but not with a lot of enthusiasm.  Even Jim Nabors is no longer there.last_img
