For those of us that live here in and around this city, the 500 has been a huge part of our life growing up.
I just wanted to share a thought that some folks might not know about.
Our tickets are printed with the previous year's winner on them.
so even though we know Dan will be remembered in some larger scale at the race in 2012.
it is an automatic remembrance that EVERYONE that attends the race will be involved in. almost a bit creepy.
a recent ticket
as you should know by now he won this years race..

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - IZOD IndyCar is planning a public memorial Sunday to honor Dan Wheldon, who was killed last weekend during a race at Las Vegas Speedway.
The memorial honoring the two-time Indianapolis 500 winner will be at 4 p.m. Sunday at Conseco Fieldhouse, IndyCar said in a news release Tuesday night.
A trust fund has also been set up to benefit Wheldon’s wife and two young children. The public can make donations to the Dan Wheldon Family Trust Fund starting Wednesday by mailing to Fifth Third Private Bank, Attn: Dan Wheldon Family Trust, 251 N. Illinois St., Suite 1000, Indianapolis, IN 46204.[/list]
