Bricks & Bones: The Endearing Legacy and Nitty-Gritty Phenomenon of The Indy 500, explores the cultural significance, endearing legacy, and nitty-gritty phenomenon of The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
On Sunday, May 28th 2017, the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 was witnessed by some 300,000 people in attendance, and those watching at home saw a polished event thanks to modern television production. But what happens before the cameras turn on and the people arrive? What about after everyone goes home? That's the real allure of Speedway, Indiana, where the Indianapolis 500 is so much more than a single event.
Bricks & Bones reveals the landscape of this small Indiana town, etched forever in the halls of racing history. Its people, places, and mystique all brought to life by Automoblog.net's Tony Borroz as he experiences old Speedway tales, opulent dinners at St. Elmo's, and a chance encounter with a driver who nearly died in the Indy 500. Borroz gives a unique perspective on the drivers and why Indianapolis Motor Speedway is such a challenging venue for them. He even gets to see, thanks to an old racing friend, the very homes where some of the sport's most famous names lived.
