I am reminded of Eliot when I witness this scene. Tens of thousands of hot, exhausted race fans stream out of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and down 16th street after the annual running of the 2010 Indianapolis 500. This year, the 100th Anniversary of the “greatest spectacle in racing” was the hottest day ever for the Memorial Day event — with temperatures reaching a scorching 95, and track heat exceeding 135 degrees. Hundreds passed out, while beverage sales were brisk.

I was there as a guest of my old pals Terry Lowe and Don Berry, who were in town for their “Publisher’s Bash.” For complete Indy 500 Gonzo Publishers Weekend Coverage, please visit see the Indy Social Media report here.
