It’s May in Indianapolis, and that means FAST cars. I hear the humming engines even miles away at my home. Many a casual driver seems to pick up their speed a bit. I have fond memories coming from a ‘car’ family and my first career as an automotive engineer. Indy Cars define performance at its best.

Go, You Go!
Have a great Holiday Weekend!
