Brickyard 400 2011 - One Fan's Experience
There was a special reunion / meet and greet for us veterans at the Legion in Carmal the night before the race. I was able to meet up with one other soldier from my old Patriot Battalion. Needless to say it was a very emotion and exciting night for us all. Thank you to the Legion and the VFW for sponsoring us that night. You guys and gals went the extra mile for us and made us feel welcome and honored.
Miller High Life sponsored some 80 Desert Storm Veterans to ride around the track with the drivers. About 150 of us also held large banners out on the track during the opening ceremonies.
John and Scott from Illustrate my life . com are the two guys who put the Desert Storm reunion / Brickyard deal together. They did it with no funding and through much confusion between them, the Mayor's office and the Indianapolis Speedway. They did a great job and deserve a special thank you! THANK YOU !!
