OK, we survived the Mergification, the End of the Split,
the Crash of Champ Car or the Kiss and Make Up of Open Wheel. Call it what you
want, but it seemed it would never really happen. Thankfully, the fat lady found
her voice and sang just before time ran out to even attempt to make this work
Although it was close to the start of the season, the IndyCar Series can now get
down to the business of making use of an opportunity it has been waiting for and
should be able to capitalize on. We admit, we thought it all might just be one
big April Fools joke till we realized itís NOT April! Side note:
You have our sincere promise to not do another April Fool's joke like we did in
Camp and Brew is once again deep in the planning stages for this, our 7th annual
event in the Coke Lot. We have no idea how it has grown to this, but since it
has and we are powerless to stop it, we will forge ahead and will be there with
cold kegs of beer again this year.
We are all about the fun and celebration at Camp and Brew. We are race fans who
enjoy each other's company and offer a gathering place for like minded people,
in the days leading up to the race. Everyone is invited, so donít look for an
invitation in the mail. No R.S.V.P is ever needed.
Our designated charity, as it has been every year is
Brianís Wish. We are very
happy to still be associated with Brianís parents Many Ann and Jim. For the 6
years we have been having Camp and Brew, we have raised over $15,000, a fact we
are immensely proud of. Just maybe, with more C&B fans this year due to the
Mergi-fication, and a few more race pools too, it might be possible to beat the
total raised 2 years ago.
We expect to be in the same great location at Camp and Brew Corner right where
all the big semis go into the Coke Plant on the gravel road. We always laugh
when people say they canít find us...We are hiding in plain sight every year!
How many cars will take the green flag at Homestead? We are hoping to see 26.
Regardless, we know exactly who many will circle the IMS track on Indy 500 race
dayó33 same number as tradition dictates. We would not have it any other way.
Make plans to stop by Camp and Brew this year...Or play one of the
pools and make a donation to Brianís Wish. Regardless of how you do so, we
We are also now accepting sponsors for our 2008 event.
Sponsors will be listed on our Sponsors page.
