While I’m en route to a little relaxation at my parents’ lake abode to cool off for the weekend, things in Texas will just be heating up. I’ll be floating around the lake in the pontoon while final adjustments and preparations are being made on pit lane around the Texas Motor Speedway. By the time I’m back to shore, it’ll be just about time for the Firestone Twin 275s to start and my family and I will tune in just as we always have.
The television will be set to Versus and, because we will most likely be outside, our SiriusXM radio dock will be blaring the race broadcast on the deck. Home or the lake, indoors or outdoors, day or night, if it’s race day you can be sure we’ll be listening to the race through some medium.
Everyone has their race day rituals or traditions. Whether you throw big parties, have small family get-togethers, or lounge on the couch in a t-shirt featuring your favorite driver, we love the way you tune into IndyCar. We’d love to hear more about your favorite ways to spend race day.

We want to know why your way is cooler than any other!

My may might have ended with some ridiculous tan lines on my feet, but it started at the Meijer store across from my apartment. On a quest for blueberries, I walk in and see a cardboard Marco staring back at me. Goodness, I adore Indy’s passion for the 500. Candied tires and checkered everything.
The planning process for May is definitely stressful, especially whilst trying to fit in a race every other weekend. But on 5.14, we kicked it off with the first-ever all-driver autograph session at the Macy’s in Castleton Square Mall. Mind you, I have a soft spot for this mall. Many-a-day shopping for shoes and cruising for boys. Does ANYONE remember the Units store? Mix-n-match cotton sashes? No?
The new IndyCar web site launched just over a month ago with a new focus on the fan. The site features better integration of video content, a focus on the social experience (such as Twitter), a rich selection of images through the site and Flickr page, the incorporation of nomee cards and much more. We’re also working behind-the-scenes to bring you more innovative web content. We love the IndyCar series and think you should too. IndyCar is becoming more active online, determined to connect with our fans in new ways. Here’s a picture from the 2010 opener in Brazil, from Flickr user Crystian Cruz.
