I'm counting down the days until the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
I'm not a race fan in the fanatic sense. I've only been to the Indy 500 a handful of times. My memories center around listening to the race on the radio in the backyard while filling out the leading laps grid from the Indianapolis Star.
I do love Indianapolis, tradition, and most of all a theme! Each day I will share a memory or tidbit of history.
And since I do love a theme, I feel like I need to start at 100 for the countdown, so let me catch you up.
92 days until the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 seems like a good time to talk about the 1992 race. Al Unser, Jr. won the 1992 race by a mere .043 seconds.
By my calculations, he won by the hair of his chinny chin chin.
