Here is a link to a great Indy car radio show, I listen in on Tunein app.

IndyCar America - Broken Buggy Radio

I can't wait for the season to start and I am going to The Milwaukee race like I always do because I feel it's only a matter of time without a sponsor that they can even run that race. Andretti is propping it up as Milwaukee's Indy Fest 250 but with fan support low and no eager to sign their name to this event this might be the last year for the oldest oval in America.

I plan also on going to the Indy 500, any tips of advice for going and things to do all weekend there?

Glad to see Simona de Silvestro has a deal at least for the opening round!

Hmmm - 16 races

5 road courses (NOLA Motorsports, Barber, the horrible Indianapolis infield thing, Mid Ohio, Sonoma)
6 ovals
5 street course (one a double)

Fortunately only one double (Belle Isle), wasn't fond of those the year they were introduced. Too many ovals and street courses in the season for me - the street courses tend to be crash fests and I don't watch motorsports for the crashes. I wouldn't watch F1 street courses, either, but I tend to be more invested in the teams and drivers. Monaco is my LEAST favorite F1 race.

Also not fond of the 4 driver teams - 16 of potentially 28 drivers belong to the big 4 cars teams.

Obviously the museum inside the track, but try to go when they first open. Any other time they will be packed. Honestly, aside from museums and such, there's not much to do there lol.

Default Aero Kits strike again...

In addition to leaving debris all over the track, those obscenely gaudy winglets were responsible for a spectator injury on Sunday.
