Pole Day: Good Morning From IMS!

Happy Pole Day to one and all! If you didn't check out our 1-page guide to today's action, make sure to give it a glance.

I got here early today, and was able to walk through Gasoline Alley. With morning practice scheduled from 8-10am, the teams were already working hard and rolling cars out. Here are a few pics to give you an idea of the scene in Gasoline Alley this AM:



The Lotus Fan Force crew was hard at it as we went past.


Charlie Kimball's #83 was being fired up just outside their garage.


AJ Foyt wasn't out and about yet, but Wade Cunningham's car was wheeled past.


I'm digging the chrome and the big ".com" on Hinch's nose cone and front wing.


Townsend Bell's crew wheeled past as well.


Of course, it wouldn't be Pole Day morning without the Gordon Pipers. Here they are, playing "Scotland the Brave" on the bricks.

That's all for now, but stay tuned for a great Pole Day, whether you'll be at the track or watching from home. The question marks surrounding today means we'll all be surprised more than once before it's all over. Also, make sure you check out our interview we did with Wade Cunningham from in front of the Social Media Garage (yes, I know I shouldn't have been chewing gum--terrible habit)!
