*First a little 500 business...there is a small correction to my on-air statement about the number of attendees at the track. I believe it's more like 350k and not 450k, but who is counting? On the day of the race IMS could still be considered about the 40th largest city in the US. A couple other things that would fit in the Speedway: The Roman Colosseum, Yankee stadium, Churchill Downs and Liberty Island. There's a pretty cool graphic going around Facebook that puts that in perspective.

As many of you might know, the race was completely sold-out this year so the live broadcast black out has been lifted! So fans without tickets can watch it live this year, Sunday at Noon on ABC. Here's a few more tidbits of 500 trivia: the 500 is the only race where the cars start in rows of 3, rather than 2. Fastest lap? That belongs to Arie Luyendyk, at 237.498 MPH (1996). And lastly, this fun fact - if all the hot dogs/brats consumed at the race were laid end to end, they would circle the track 4 times. (For those of you who are good at math, that's 2.5 miles x 4 = way too damn many hot dogs!)

(*Again, muchas gracias John Eastes, for the track trivia!)

* A one-hit-wonder about how people isolate themselves with technology and materialism. Not so surprisingly, 30 years later it's still holds true, with social media and all our gadgets. (This song could easily be updated to "Phones" as in...'here on my phone, i feel safest of all, I can ignore everyone, it's the only way to live...on phones.' Where's Weird Al when you need him?)

Side Notes

  • Culture Club will be at Clowes Memorial Hall on July 15th. Now, I wouldn't go so far as to say Boy George is a good looking man, but the Karma Chameleon must have fallen in the Fountain of Youth because he does NOT look 54. Talk about aging well! Seriously, go google image him.
