500 Miles To Go

I was directed toward Al Bloemker's wonderful book 500 Miles to Go, and have been wholly unable to stop reading it.  The book itself, which colorfully details much of the early history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Indy 500, is free to download in several ebook and online formats here.  Besides being a great, accessible read, it's an excellent reminder that things weren't always as smooth for IMS as perhaps we suppose they were.


  1. Thanks for the link! Glad you're enjoying the book.

  2. Oh yes, very much so!
