We chose the Indy 500 for our inspiration today...Over the years of racing the winners and the loser all contributed to each of us today.
The testing and innovations that have been developed from the racing programs have made it safer in today's world. The cars now have better tires, seat belts, disc brakes and things we take for granted.
The driver of these race cars have been hero's to many of us. They have driven and lived their life filled with their passion for the sport. A few have been killed in accidents but they died doing what they loved.
If we live our life to the fullest do the things we love, share with others and make this a better world for those around us then we are also champions and hero's.
