It wasn't only in the campgrounds that the madness took place. Saw some memorable things at the motels! The old Howard Johnsons nearest the track, in Indy, all the state troopers were put up there, and lots of racers too. Mini-bike drags in the parking lot, on nitro! And the cops stood out on their room balconies with cash in hand, betting on the outcomes! I saw motel drapes ripped down and torn into rags to clean parts. Every motel parking lot in the area had torn down race cars in the parking lot. My first Indy was 67. There was no place else on earth I'd rather spend Labor Day weekend, and there still isn't!
