Didn't realize how much it was a part of Memorial Day Weekend until it wasn't there. Went in 1973, never saw a race, it rained for two days, we ran out of money and had to head home. Went in 1980 and saw Johnny Rutherford win. We were just wandering around after the race and there was his car, sitting all alone in Gasoline Alley. I looked around and no one was watching, so I went over and kicked the tires.
