Another reason why I like Indy


The race, not the Jones (although I like him very much too!)

Troops Find Gratitude, Entertainment at 500

Sirois' company [Checker's/Rally's] is an "America Supports You" corporate team member and an "Operation Gratitude" corporate sponsor. America Supports You is a Defense Department program that highlights grassroots and corporate support of the nation's servicemembers. Indianapolis Motor Speedway joined the organization last year. Operation Gratitude is a California-based grassroots troop-support organization that has sent more than 125,000 packages since its creation in March 2003.


I've been a bit burned out of late, I couldn't even work up enough interest to post the rest of the Jesse MacBeth story (I will get to that soon though). It was nice to find some fun news this morning!

The pic is of Danica Patrick's car. She's the coolest female driver to race at Indy EVER!

(and I was there the year the FIRST woman raced at Indy!)
