Long story, but back at the beginning of our little road trip we were given “hot passes” to the Indianapolis 500. There are two types of access passes commonly doled out at the Indy. Cold passes let you onto the track and into the pits and just about anywhere else you want to go, but only until 11:30 (well before the race actually starts). Hot passes, on the other hand, let you go essentially wherever you want before, during and after the race.
That’s how we managed to get this shot in the pits. We love it because it demonstrates the level of organization it takes to keep those incredible cars driving around in circles all day.
