Every year after the Indy 500, I have a bit of a letdown. I suppose it’s a mix of sadness that it’s all over for another year, exhaustion a very busy stretch of time, and being busy catching up on everything I simply stopped work on to go to the Speedway instead. (Of course, trying to recover from the always near-terminal sunburn doesn't help!).
It’s as if you get to live around this amazing world for a short time, only to get thrown back into the daily grind. After a few days, though, I’m ready and raring to go—case in point, I cannot wait for the Firestone Twin 275s this weekend!
Am I the only one who gets the post-Indy “blahs”? One thing’s for sure—I’m glad it doesn’t last long. Of course, Texas Motor Speedway is a pretty good remedy for that sort of thing.
