Hi, my name is Paul Woods, and I’m a race fan.
I created IndianaRacing.net to celebrate and promote the enjoyment of motorsports in Indiana.
There are a lot of different reasons that people enjoy racing. Some like the raw speed. Some appreciate the mechanical innovation. Some are thrilled by the danger and excitement. Some actually like the politics and bickering. Some just like to hoot and holler and drink beer with thousands of other people that like to hoot and holler and drink beer. And I like all of those things too, to a certain degree.
But what I like most are the events themselves, and the atmosphere that surrounds them. The sights, the sounds, the tastes, the smells, and especially the “feel” of being there. I’m fascinated by the fact that generations of race fans have enjoyed the same experiences at the same racetracks we all visit today, and at how racing is such an important part of Indiana’s history and culture.
For reasons I don’t fully understand, I feel compelled to somehow capture and share some of these experiences with others. To help people re-live the moments if they were there, enjoy them for the first time if they were not, and perhaps encourage them to participate in the future if the possibility had never occured to them.
That’s my mission, plain and simple. That and “keep it fun”. Share things when I have time, and hope that people enjoy them. I hope that you’ll share things too. Comments, questions, personal stories, photos, or what have you, are all welcome. Send them my way and I’ll be happy to post them to the site.
