    Don't know about INDY but I'm sure you will have a blast. I was at Nh 3 weeks ago and it was awesome. Take lots of pics to share. Which driver do you like? I am a huge Elliott Sadler fan and got to meet him in NH.
    Have fun.

      I live in Indy but have never been to the Brickyard race. I've been to several 500's and they are very loud when all of the cars pass by your seats. I'd bring some ear plugs - I'm sure they will have them for sale there, but I'm sure they would be quit pricey. Have a great time and let us know how your experience here was!

        Never been to Indy but I do go to Vegas, Phoenix and CA races and they are loud. If you can afford them rent the race scanners, it makes the race a lot more interesting and the head sets muffle the sound. I'd love to go so I jealous, maybe next year. Is this your first race? Have fun try and stay cool and hydrated

          thank you all....

          I have been to bristol which was so loud because the track is so small and like a fish bowl. We used the scanners then. I just didn't know how it would be at a large track.

          a friend of mine got us our tickets and rooms at the downtown indianapolis marriott, so I am very excited.

          I really like Jimmie Johnson, He has been my favorite since he started. I like to see the good old guys win too. I would love to have seen Dale Jarrett win another championship.

          I'll yell once for Sadler for you!!!!!!!

              dale jarrett.....I know...he was my husbands favorite driver. He cried when Dale won the championship. I always wanted him to get to meet Dale Jarrett. I was only able to get his autograph for him a couple of times through friends that work with Nascar. My husband passed away in December. We did at least get to watch Dale race in Bristol and got some great pictures and wonderful memories.

                Boyfriend is VERY Jealous of you Kid! But he said to tell you that everything at Indy is intensified like 5 times what Bristol would be...the traffic jam at Bristol after the race was a cakewalk compared to what Indy will be. He says have plenty of food & drink on hand! Have a BLAST!!!

                    we are going as guests of gallo winery and coors, so we have an escort in and out of the track....i know that is very fortunate. I am getting soooooooo excited. Bristol traffic was bad enough. I don't know if I would go to indy unless I was giving this chance with the escort

                          You lucky Woman! Am I jealous. My husband and I watch NASCAR every weekend and just love it. We both like Junior and Tony. Being that we are up here in Minnesota, it makes it hard to attend one of these races. Oh well, maybe someday. Have fun and take lots of pictures, espcially if you get to tour the garage area or pit road. Post back and let us know how it was.

                            Glad that you have "passes".. because I was going to tell you the parking sux!

                            Had to park about 4 miles from the track.. and walk... and walk.. of course it was the year it was 100*. We left early (never had done this before.. and haven't since) and luckily there was a pickup truck charging $5.00/person for a ride back to your car.

                            As far as the noise.. nothing like Bristol () .. I think it depends on where you sit~ We sat between turn 3 and 4 (thankfully there was a HUGE big screen TV!)...

                            The place is SO big.. you will be amazed how much bigger it is in person than in your mind~ (make sense)

                            Have a wonderful time!!!! Wave to the camera's.. and I look for ya!

                              Lucky you!! Have a great time. We use the scanners too, really helps with the noise but bring earplugs too. Since you are a guest, you might be able to enjoy their hospitality tent too which is a cool experience.
                              We've been to Texas, Charlotte, Vegas & have season tickets at Kansas of course.
