OT: Indy 500 in August 

Post#1 » by Scoot McGroot » Sat Aug 15, 2020 8:00 pm

Thought I’d throw this thread out in case anyone has interest. Just one thread for the whole month of May...er.....August.


So far on first day of quals, Andretti cars have the qualifying speed, and Penske doesn’t. Who knows what that’ll mean for race day, though.

Well, here's the watch tie in from Tag Heuer, if anyone is into watches

Not my cup of tea personally, the dial's a little too busy. And at that price point ($2,050), for a Quartz, you're probably better off going for a Grand Seiko

But it's an Indy 500 commemorative piece, and it's limited to 1,500 pieces, so it's made for the fans, I guess

(Funny little thing: it still says "May 24, 2020", engraved on the case back)

Fast 9 qualifying for the pole starts up at 1:15 eastern on NBC. Should be exciting!

Some of my favorite lines from previous 500's radio broadcasts:

Tom Carnegie: "...and Mario is slowing down on the backstretch" This happened on more than one occasion.

Bobby Unser: "I'm tellin' you guys, that Johncock fella needs glasses" Right after Gordon Johncock smashed his car.
