Indianapolis 500 - IN - USA

The Indy 500 is one of the most famous races in the world - in this postcard we can see the traditional balloon release shortly before the start of the 2011 edition (celebrating 100 years of Indy 500). In Europe we normally follow Formula One championship with that elaborated circuits instead of the simple oval track they have in the states, but I really like to watch Indy 500 and NASCAR racing on ESPN (specially the crashes, of course!). Thank you so much Jaelen. This postcard took 14 days to arrive!

The Indianapolis 500-Mile Race is an automobile race held annually at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana, an enclave suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana. The event is held over Memorial Day weekend, which is typically the last weekend in May. The event, billed as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, is considered one of the three most prestigious motorsports events in the world. The inaugural running was won by Ray Harroun in 1911.
