Embrace the May-aos

Can you hear it? It started with the beat of 30,000 participants racing through downtown in one of the nation's premier half-marathons and won't end until the roar of the 101st Greatest Spectacle in Racing: it's "May-aos" in Indianapolis.

JW Marriott in May in IndianapolisYou can definitely see it: the "welcome race fans" signs, checkered flag everything, artwork, signage (have you see the JW Marriott lately?), and street signs renamed for favorite drivers.

And feel it: the electric anticipation of a pre-dawn journey to the track, the far-off rumble of horsepower miles away, the warm sunshine of an afternoon spent at the Speedway.
