“The Basement:” OMG. I went to Mecca (aka the Indianapolis Motor Speedway) Saturday morning as part of a Tweetup of IndyCar fans. We were given a huge surprise and a rare treat: a tour of the infamous basement at the Museum. There are people who’ve worked at the speedway for decades who haven’t been allowed this privilege…still stunned at our good luck. A local TV station was there to cover the story.
