    What Happens To All The Old IRL And NASCAR Engines Once They Become Outdated? When the IRL and NASCAR changes the rules about engines, what do the teams do with the old ones? Do they end up in a scrap yard somewhere? Also, what happened to the Oldsmobile and Infiniti engines from 97 that were used in the Indy 500? Is it possible to still buy one of those?

    If I Manage To Get Indy 500 Infield Parking, Can I Still Get To My Grandstand Seats? I want to experience the pre-race infield scene, but I have seats in Stand J.

    • Curator says:

      Of course you would still be able to get to your grandstand seats. Just letting you know though. The chances of you getting infield parking is very slim. You would have to leave maybe like at 3am or camp out in front of the speedway overnight. Me and my grandpa be leaving out around 9am and we’re still late trying to park in the infield. (Not that we be trying to park there anyway, but when we be walking up to the main entrance to the speedway they have it blocked off so no more cars can enter. We usually park in someone’s yard. Lol) So yeah you will still be able to see all the pre-race stuff by walking over to it and all, but be prepared for a long walk. See ya on race day!

    What Is NBC Showing On May 27 Since It Will Not Be A Possible Game 7 Devils Vs Rangers? Any ideas why NBC punted to its sister sports Network for a possible game 7 Devils at NYR for a 8:00 PM dropping of the puck (more like closer to 8:10 PM)

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/schedulebymonth.htm#?navid=nav-sch-month

    I thought at first maybe golf was the culprit and no that was not it it’s on CBS (Golf who watches that anymore?)

    INDY 500 (Starts 12:00 PM) no it’s still on ABC and besides the rating have been in the tank for years, so I doubt NBC and the NHL are afraid to be on when race is going on. Besides the higher rated Coca-Cola 600 is at night.

    That leaves Olympic sports or Infomercials that NBC will be broadcasting on the day of May 27 as NBC no longer has the NBA.

    Don’t tell me the Garden has a Disney Ice Show or the circus is in town.

    NBC also will not be showing a possible game 7 between LA Kings and Phoenix Coyotes either. I sure hope NBC is not showing some damn telethon.
    Not talking about the Prime time on Sunday , but during the day. NBC may as well show Hockey on Saturday night as the ratings couldn’t be any worse then what they would have shown any ways.

    • Curator says:

      I believe it is specified in the old OLW/Versus-deal which games are broadcast on cable and which games are broadcast national tv on NBC

      It’s the same with the NBA, most of the playoff games are on TNT, not ABC.

  • What To Bring As A Gift To My Host Family In Germany? I will be participating in a student exchange program, and I need to bring gifts for my host family in Germany. My host family consists of a 16 year old girl, 6 year old boy, and their mother and father. I live in Indiana, and so far they have requested that I bring peanut butter, a picture book of the US or Indiana, and clothes (of American football and Indy 500 logos.). Do you have any other ideas of stuff that I can bring as gifts?

    What Is On Debonair Lane Now? We used to go to the Indy 500 and stayed at the Red Roof Inn on Debonair Lane just off of Crawfordsville Rd right near the interstate exit. I was going to recommend it to someone and decided to check to make sure it’s still a good place to stay. The last reviews were from 2009 and were really bad. Then I called Red Roof and found out its not even there any more. Can anyone tell me what is there? Is there a new motel or restaurant? Google maps still has the Red Roof and the Motel 6 on it. The apartments are gone in that photo. It was just the best spot to stay for the race. You could leave your car parked and walk to the track.

    • Curator says:

      That whole area is under road construction right now and most likely won’t be done before the 500. The Red Roof Inn is not there, the Motel 6 is. That area while not the best in the city isn’t the worst either but personally I wouldn’t stay there. That area has had it’s crime problems. I believe once the road work is done they might try to clean that area up but who knows. My suggestion to your friend would be to try one of the hotels at Rockville Rd and I-465 just a few miles south of the area you were considering. There’s a Windgate by Wyndham, Mictotel Inn, Comfort Inn and a Sleep Inn in the southeast quadrant of that interchange. Also nearby is a Best Western on High School Rd but I’m not sure of that area, there used to be problems around that hotel due to the apartment complex behind the hotel. I know these hotels are a little further away but on raceday some hotels offer a shuttle up to the track you just have to ask the hotel and see if they do. My only other suggestion would be to get a hotel on the outskirts of town say like Plainfield, Greenwood, Carmel, Lebanon etc… and drive down to the track or to one of the park’n ride locations and take the bus the rest of the way to the track. Remember to book early, lot of the hotels in the area fill up fast for the race. A lot of them get booked up with the race teams and other people needed for the race.
