Behind the scenes at the official photo shoot with the Indianapolis 500 winner, Helio Castroneves of Team Penske. Joie Chitwood, Speedway President, poses with Helio and the Borg Warner Trophy for all the other photogs lensing it up, while the Indiana skies opened over the Speedway. So the rain-shortened Coca Cola 600 was not the only facility affected by weather on Memorial Day.
Point of Personal Privilege: I thought the Memorial Day tribute at Lowe's during the 600 was sincere and appreciated, but a few years too late for some of my contemporaries who served in the US Army during the Vietnam era. I hope those who spat on the soldiers as they came through San Francisco during that time reflect on what they did as much as our brothers in arms do and learn from the mistakes of the past.
