The day of racing

Memorial Day weekend is a great weekend for fans of auto racing. Specifically Sunday. Why?

First, things get kicking in the morning with the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.

Then, at mid-day, we have the Indianapolis 500 in, well, Indianapolis, Indiana. The track and its surrounding area are actually a suburb aptly named Speedway.

Later, in the evening, you have the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

1100 miles of racing on American soil alone. Add in the 260.520 km that the Monaco Grand Prix gives us, and we have approximately 1262 miles of racing to enjoy in one day. They're all perfectly timed so you don't have to miss a lap. It's great.

If you need me today, I'll be in front of a tv. At a friend's place in the morning, at my uncle's place mid-day, and finally back home in the evening. In between F1 and Indy, there'll be a stop-off at Subway to pick up sandwiches. In between Indy and Charlotte, well, there's dinner. Food and racing, what more could I ask for?
