Every year I've lived in Indianapolis I've been more and more interested in the Indianapolis 500.
It's gone from not caring at all in 2000 to checking in at the Machine Room Grill in 2003 to see who had just won.(The Reds were in the midst of losing a very dissapointing game to some no name with a funky windup named Dontrelle Willis that day), to checking the qualification times the last few years to watching the last few hours of bump day this year.
This year for various reasons has easily been the best year Indy has had since the early 90's.
My pick is Ryan Briscoe. I actually know nothing about racing, but he's my gut pick.
