As opening ceremonies for the 91st running of the Indianapolis 500 kicked off today, we sent crack reporter TippyGomez to the verneralbe speed plant in order to give you, our readers, some experienced insights to what is, “The Worlds Greatest Spectacle.”

Today was a day like no other opening day in the history of the Indianapolis 500, as none other than four time winner A.J. Foyt was celebrating his fiftyith year of participation in the great race.

May 30, 2006 – 11:39 pm

As a service to you, the readers of the Shelbyville Gazzette, We have sent crack reporter Tippy Gomez on a treck to the World Famous Little “500″ at Anderson Speedway. Tippy was in awe of the amount of fans this event attracted, and the great atmosphere in which it was quite easy to determine that something special was about to happen.
