Mafia, that is a great photo. I didn't know they could run those roadsters in the rain. Can you tell me what "Keck" is?

1911 Marmon Wasp driven by Ray Harroun, first Indy
2011 Dallara/Honda driven by Dan Weldon :( , 100 years later
1961 Trevis/Offy driven by the one and only AJ Foyt :), 50th running

Recognized the track and the Borg Warner trophy :beer:
