On and off for many years until the late 1990's and have attended every race since in generally the same seats. Had also completed the Trifecta every year attending the Indy 500, the U.S. Grand Prix and The Brickyard until the Grand Prix left. I did not attend this years Moto GP.
Hello Indy fans, I am new to this group, but not "The Speedway". I first went to time trials, in 1972 and again time trials in 1973. My first 500 was 1974, and I have not missed one since, - -36 years in a row. I also went for the first 10 Brickyard 400's. Living in North Carolina, if I want to see NASCAR, I dont have to travel 500 miles. There is nothing like being at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and it is difficult to explain ,what it is like being there, on race day , to someone that has never been there , you just got to be there to understand.
Indy 500: Total 46 Streak 26 Missed 1983 got food poisoining the night before the race.
Brickyard 400: Total 12 Quit going in 2006
US Grand Prix: Total will update when I get home & check my tickets

On and off in different seats (bought thru friends) until the 1990's..Have sat in the same seats ever since. A guy who I go in their group now has been to every race since 1964 in the seats we now sit in.
Not going to make the race this year for the first time since '02. Got married last weekend. Wife asked me if I was -really- going to go on a "guy's weekend" trip during the first weekend of our marriage. She would let me go... but I think I made the right call. :-)
Plus, several of my buddies couldn't make it this year for various reasons. We are all looking forward to making it next year.
Everyone that will be there this year, have a great time!
