Bucket List ~ Four

Another add to my bucket list.
Please go check out Gina, at "Rainbow's Daily Life" and link up with her and her linky.
It is so much fun to see and read about every ones bucket list.

One of the places I have always wanted to go is to the Indy 500 race in Indianapolis.
Sunday May 29, 2011 was the 100th anniversary of this very prestige race.

The end of the race was a heart wrenching one for the rookie driver Hildebrand who in the last corner hit the wall. Giving the race to Dan Wheldon. Congratulation's to him and his team who drove a great race as did the rookie. It was a heart breaker!
I had really wanted Danica Patrick but that didn't happen. She drove a great race as well. Her poll start was 25th and she ended the race in 8th as well as lead it for several laps towards the very end of the race. She just got some bad breaks today.

Bravo to all!
It was a good day at the track.

Hubby recorded both the Indy and the Coco Cola race today.

My husband and I both love auto racing.

When I was much younger I use to race in Marysville, California on the dirt track with the guy I was dating at the time.
We had a blast!
He also pitted for Nascar at the time. So I got to go to a lot of wonderful races.
Meet Dale Earnhardt Sr. many moons ago.  Along with many other big racers of the time. It was an exciting time in my life. Great memories.
Somewhere in all of my pictures I have some Nascar photos. Goodness knows where they are though. I think I will have to look for them.

When I was traveling with my mom and my younger sister. to Pa. To see my Great Aunt Cora; coming home they stopped at the Indy track for me. We spent most the day there, so we went through the museum and took lots of pictures. What fun that was! Lots of history and lots of race cars. Now I must go back for the race. I'd even like to go back for The Brick Yard race in Nascar.

My husband has several tracks he would like to go too. He goes to Phoenix track every year to watch the race in November. One day i would like to go with him. He calls it the guys weekend trip. I think I should be allowed to crash it!

Do you like auto racing?

I like watching F1, although I lost track with it when I went to university.

I'm catching up with the next season, though.
