Travel Channel Seeks Enthusiastic Indy 500 Fans for New Show…

Are you who they’re looking for? I was approached this week about this, but alas, as much as I would like to participate, (mostly to meet Adam Richman who is one of my food/travel channel crushes) I hardly fall into the Indy 500 Superfan category. In fact, as you are all aware, I’m more of an ‘anti’ superfan when it comes to the “greatest spectacle in racing”.

I go to this race to work. It’s actually one of, if not the most frustrating race on the circuit for me. Thankfully Detroit is the following weekend. It is such a joy to cover and attend that race, that it makes up for all the anger and tears Indy sows in my soul…

That said, I told them that many of my friends, colleagues and readers definitely fall into the Indy 500 superfan category, have many more stories, and do many more interesting and traditional things that weekend with their friends and family. So, here you go kids! If you think you are who they are looking for, drop them a note!


Passionate Indianapolis 500 fans are encouraged to contact The Travel Channel to appear on a new show celebrating great food, amazing tailgate setups, one-of-a-kind traditions and the best parties at “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

The show will be taped in and around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway beginning on Coors Light Carb Day, Friday, May 24, through Race Day on Sunday, May 26. The episode will air in August or September.
If you’re a die-hard Indianapolis 500 fan attending this year’s race and hosting a great tailgate party, have an amazing RV or a special dish you’d like to share, contact The Travel Channel by emailing with subject line “Indy 500.”

Be sure to include photos of you and your friends and family showing off your Indianapolis 500 pride and passion!

Good luck everyone! Let me know how it goes!
