Indianapolis. The month of May. If you're a race fan, I don't think you need any more than those two statements to imagine pure bliss. Luckily for me, I was able to take my own small part in the proceedings this year by racing in the Night Before the 500 at Lucas Oil Raceway. Just a few miles away from the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway, many young drivers – like me – experienced our first oval race this past weekend.
After a solid test day at the track earlier in the month, we felt comfortable heading into the weekend. In Friday testing and Saturday morning practice we were solidly in the top-five cars and looking forward to challenging for a top spot on Saturday night.
The whole experience was fantastic, but drawing as the last driver to go in my first single-car qualifying session may have been one of the coolest things I have done in a race car thus far. Although we only had enough speed for P9 of 24 on the grid, pushing yourself to the limit for two laps on the oval was some of the most rewarding ragged-edge driving I've had a chance to do.
On another note, my family has entered in the Cycle for Autism at home in Edmonton this weekend on June 2nd. Weare raising money as "Team Rzad" for my 17 year-old brother, Artur, who was diagnosed with autism two years ago. "Team Rzad" is now the second highest online fundraiser for the event, just behind the title sponsor. To try and help raise more money, I have offered to do the entire ride in my full racing kit – helmet, suit, gloves, all included!
