As a native of Indiana, I always watch the Indy 500. To me, there’s just something more…honest about open-wheel racing as opposed to NASCAR. And, while I’m sure there are many, many people who can be considered “rednecks” in attendance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it just seems less…well, I’m just gonna say it – white-trashy than NASCAR. (A low bar, I know.)
I do love the old Brickyard, though. What a place.
