you guys should go, pretty cheap. $85 for race day and $25 for practice and qualifying. the only thing that might be a little expensive is the hotel.

You mean the Start and Finish line paddock? These are the penthouse seats, sweet. I'm in the Northwest Vista, the first turn from the start line, that's where it usualy everything goes down.

You guys can park in my yard...

I live like 5 blocks from the track! It would be sweet to have a yard full of Bimmers. Who do you guys think will win?

it is not the penthouse, it is in the stands, but right where the start/ finish line is. if you go the Indianapolis website, and check the seating, you will see the paddock area, which is white and then the top part is red colored i believe. the white is the stands and the red is the penthouse. i think

Wow!

You better get a hotel now... I'm sure they are going fast. I live close to the golf course, but I'm sure my parents would kick my @$$ if I let people park in our grass. They hate race weekends and usually go somewhere else. Enjoy the race!

www.hotels.com
or try somewhere not around the South Side of Indy. The farther away you go from the track, the cheaper it will be.

I'm getting tired of M. Schumacher, my hopes are on Ralph and lately Alonso.

Broad Ripple

There is a small town called "Broad Ripple" on the North Side of Indy that has a great night life. You could always go downtown also. If you need any restaurant suggestiosn, let me know.
