Whither the Indy 500?
Did any of you watch the Indy 500 today? Since I mentioned the Beverly Hillbillies in my previous post, did anyone see Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) sing "Back Home in Indiana"? Or does anyone really care anymore? Quick, name one Indy driver. One CART driver? I remember the day when people dropped what they were doing to watch A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Al and Bobby Unser, Mark Donahue, Gordon Johncock and all the rest fly around the Brickyard. But no longer. NASCAR has eclipsed Indy racing, and the Indy 500 just doesn't have the cache it used to.
