Sunday's Indy 500

On Sunday the Indianapolis 500 will be run for the 91st time. I'll probably keep an eye on it, but my real interest in it ended in the 1995 race.

Janesville's Stan Fox, a good childhood friend, was starting in the 11th position. Previously he had finished as high as seventh. I was excited in expectation for his greater success in this one. But then came turn one on the very first lap:

Stan survived serious head injuries but was not able to return successfully. He later died in a passenger car accident in New Zealand in 2000.
