Adding to my “hey, I was at the last (CART/Champ Car/IndyCar) race ever run there” collection, I am flying to Chicago in the AM for tomorrow night’s race. Rumours abound that this is the last hurrah (at least as far as the 2011 schedule is concerned) for IndyCar at Chicagoland, at least until all of the overgrown blowhards that run/own these tracks learn to share their toys and play nice in the sandbox. So despite schedule and money tightness, I am squeezing in this event. It’s also an opportunity to meet up with some of my west coast and central US of A racing peeps. (kinda kicking myself for not flying in tonight… but ah well)
Not really sure whether or not I will *live blog* this one. I do have another photographer at the track with me this weekend, and am not quite up to par shooting at night yet, so I may put my writer hat on instead. We’ll see. In the meantime, enjoy the race, catch ya when I can here or on twitter. (if you’re at the track, drop me a tweet!
