Default Re: Drivethru discrimination...

Back in the early '70's I was working at a bike shop on Georgetown Road about a mile from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway- I used to ride across town to work-

and I rode down to the track one afternoon- I think it was Quals- and they wouldn't let me in the gates on my bicycle! I couldn't believe it- especially when there were motorcycycles and mini bikes all over the grounds- some with young girls on them.
Oh well- I'M still standing.

In fact I recall one Quals day, and sitting up in the firsty turn bleachers- this guy across the track over in The Snake Pit stole somebody's motorcycle, and the cops were chasing him all over the place- you could see the whole thing from the stands- including when the cops closed in on him from the other direction. Pretty funny.
