* IT'S RACE DAY! *
 
 
 
Sammy, Raz, and Gracie want to welcome you all to the Tabby Cat Club Indy 500.

We hope that you enjoy your time at the Speedway. Before we head inside Gracie has your tickets for you and Raz has a map of the Speedway.

You can see the map has an X marked in red where our seats will be. It is a great spot, the first turn coming out of the start line. Plenty of action on this curve.

Once you have your tickets and map please head over to the Speedway entrance. Sammy is there and will be taking us into the infield. My niece, Anya, and Raz's sister, Allie, are joining us for today's race. Raz and Pete, a fellow Cat Scout, will have their fish fry truck and be serving us up our lunch before the pre-race activities start.

Raz and his friend Pete have set up their fish truck in the infield and will be there before the race to serve you . .

Party Wear
. . . grab a paper plate and step up to the fish fry truck and place your order.

Word has gotten out that the famous fish truck is in the infield and several of the racecar drivers have stopped by to take some food back to their pit crews before the race starts.

The infield gets really busy so try to get over there in plenty of time. Poor Sammy looks like he is in need of some help. I hope he find his way out so he can interview those down by the infield.

Also stopping by the fish truck before the race if Gracie. Our handsome and friend and announcer from the TCC tv network is there ready to grab an interview. Glad he was able to get out of the crowd.

Before you head to the Grandstand Sammy has gotten free passes for everyone to have admission to Gasoline Alley. There isn't a better place to be on race day with all the teams and their crew getting ready for the race that is soon to start.

Well I've had some fried fish at Raz and Pete's fish truck, got lost in the sea of humanity in the infield, and had a few brewskis from my own hat (haha) - I'd say I'm totally immersed in the action here but I know there's more to come!!
