Parade Lap at the Brick yard

I know putting on an event of this magnitude is mind boggling, but has anyone looked into the possibility of a parade lap at the brick yard. I know this has been done for other clubs. That would be totally awesome. I suppose we are at the mercy of their schedule, being the peak of racing season, but it would be the chance of a lifetime for most of us.

I went around the circle in 1990 when they had an ambulance manufacturers convention in Indy. We drove around the track in a passenger van. Would love to do it in Orange Krate and take photos. I did get a good tour behind the scenes in 1990 however, and I wouldn't change that for the world. Doubtful we will make this years fest because my wife and I are taking a cruise for our 25th anniversary around that time. We will be there in spirit though.

The family and I took the lap as part of the museum visit a couple a years ago. Was fun even though it was in a tour bus.Funny, looking back at the photos and remember drooling over the pace car in the museum. Didn't have any idea I would be driving one less than a year later!!

A few wks before the 500 in May they open it up for you to go driving on the track for like $10 or $20. They keep it slow because a few years ago two guys thought it would be cool to race each other and ended up crashing.

At the museum they have a tour you can take, its a bus ride around the track. Pretty scary going around the track at a good speed with the banks in a top heavy bus

Last year during practice at the Brickyard Dan Wheldon (huge camaro guy) was taking people out on the track doing laps. Looked like a blast but we got there late and the line was long.

Me too, that was fun last year...I managed to be on the front end of the groups, let people get ahead so I could get some speed. By far though, the Proving Grounds was the most memorable last year on the Power Tour.
