    Alex Lloyd - Indianapolis 500

    Only about an hour before the start of the 500, Alex, still in street clothes and getting ready to get into his drivers suit, took a few minutes to speak to my wife and me and sign her cap. She was so impressed by this that he is now her favorite driver. It's unusual because the closer you get to "go time" the drivers are very focused and don't like to be bothered so it was very nice of him to take the time.
    I later got this shot of him crossing the famous yard of bricks.

    Was he the one that later wrecked at the entrance to pit lane, obliterating the cones and speed guns?

    Yeah, one and the same!! He had scraped the wall earlier in the race and possibly the suspension was slightly damaged and I don't know if that contributed to his crash. The good thing is the crewmen with the signboards are now protected with a wall on both sides so when a car spins in the pits it's not nearly as dangerous.
