BYRDMAN's Indy Experience

So I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity participate in a military appreciation program at Texas Motor Speedway in Ft Worth this past weekend!!! The National Guard car and Real Indy Experience hooked it up with some 2 seater rides, food, pit passes, and seats to the race. Here are a few pics and vid clip. We met and chatted it up with the one and only Mario Andretti he was actually driving one of the 2 seater cars but his didnt have any go pro mounts, so I had to get in another car.

I forgot to add....I have a new respect for these guys....Although I only got to go around 2 laps, that was enough for me!!!! I hated it!! I never felt like I was going to wreck so bad, the G forces these cars pull are insane. I kept thinking to myself that at any minute the tires were going to break loose and we were going to kiss the wall. I know that the faster they go the more downforce-traction they get but I couldnt get over the fact on how much centrifugal force was pulling me to the outside! Theres no way I could do that for 550 miles!!!! I thought that I would enjoy it since Ive done alot of track days but this was no where in the same relm as motorcycles......
