Nova Baby Gone, Hubby Goes Indy

I downloaded all my husband’s iPhone pictures today because he has been to some pretty exciting places recently, and I wanted to share them with you.  Among them were his good-bye pictures of his Nova.  He was so in love.The new owner texted him when he had the car parked safely in its new garage.  So now his truck is paid off, his bills are gone, and he’s traveling free!  Yesterday while I was relaxing with friends he was treated to pit-row seats with friends in 104 degree temperature in Fontana watching the Indy 500.  He was in his element.  He and his buds posed on the scooters that the Ganassi racing team uses to get around.The team travels in style.  Ruben is enjoying a break from the heat.They park their semis inches apart and seal up the space so that they have a living room, and other common areas out of the heat.  Sorry these are a little blurry, but I wanted you to see how close these trucks are.  I can’t imagine the stress of parking this close to ANY vehicle, let alone one this valuable, but I guess driving is what these guys do.  They don’t sleep in the trucks, they all have their own motor homes.Being in the pit had its advantages.  They got to see exactly what was going on.  Besides that there are celebrities.  Ashley Judd was there because she is married to one of the drivers, Dario Franchitti.  Mario Andretti was there as well.  Vince told me, “All the good-looking women in the pit are married to the drivers.” He was particularly fascinated with this woman.I’m wondering who she married.  She was totally invested in the event.My husband got home after 1:30 a.m totally wired.  He had a great time!!!

    • Yes, it was a “Golden Nugget”. He was so excited, we stayed up and talked and looked at pictures for a LONG time in spite of the fact we were both tired!!! Thank John for making it possible.





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
