Indy Car WatchingJuly 20th, 2010 by Dan Weedin
On Sunday, I watched my first Indy Car race…ever. Of course, in the beginning I was switching back and forth from the British Open, but because Louis Oosthuizen had such a big lead, it was okay.
I decided to watch because I had a dog in the hunt. I’m a Mona Vie distributor and Mona Vie has a car and driver – Tomas Scheckter. It was interesting to watch the cars drive through the actual streets of Toronto. I’ve only ever seen bits and pieces of previous races in huge cereal bowls. I must admit this was pretty cool. The announcer mentioned that it was much more difficult and challenging due to the curvatures, bumps, and other exposures not present on a regular track. This probably was the main reason there were so many crashes.
Scheckter was one of those crashes, although he was ale to back out and finish the race. He eventually finished 15th out of 26 racers. I actually found myself interested in the race and may (just may) tune in again…
