Cloudy Saturday was Legends Day Honoring PARNELLI JONES at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was a ‘quiet’ day with no cars on track or engines running, for the most part. The crowd was nowhere the size of Friday’s sunny Carb Day, but they were out in full force for yet another Driver’s Autograph session. This time at cold 9 am all of the drivers in the 97th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race were lined up at tables with queues upon queues of fans seeking autographs, signatures and chats. In addition to the drivers, there were Pace Car driver, JIM HARBAUGH, Coach of the San Francisco 49’ers, and two people involved with the new Indy 500-themed animated film, “Turbo” due out 17 July 2013 – Actor MICHAEL PENA and Director DAVID SOREN.
Following the Autograph session, there was a Media Conference with Harbaugh and poses with the Corvette Stingray Pace Car, the public Indy 500 Driver’s Meeting, and a Q&A with Parnelli Jones in Pagoda Plaza.
After those festivities, the focus will be downtown Indianapolis for the annual Indy 500 Festival Parade, which will feature floats and all 33 IZOD IndyCar drivers.
