This will be the first time in 75 years without an Indianapolis 500 on Memorial Day (weekend).The race was run on true Memorial Day until 1970. I have watched Indy every year since I was a baby my first Indy was 1982 I was five months old! My Father has listened to his first 500 the radio in 1962 Rodger Ward he has listened or watched every year since. My mother says she remembers my Grandfather listening on the radio in 1964, the year Dave McDonald and Eddie Sachs were killed. I seem so strange knowing there will be no playing of Taps, No singing of Back Home Again in Indiana with the Purdue marching band, no Borg-Warner Trophy, No drinking of Milk.
