Welcome to 500 Miles to Go!

This site has been percolating in my head for a few years, and now (late 2010) that we're headed toward the 100th anniversary of the inaugural running of the Indianapolis 500, it seemed like an opportune time to finally make it a reality.

500 Miles to Go was published in 1961 for the 50th anniversary of the Indy 500, and here we are 50 years after that... it's amazing how the book has stood the test of time. It remains one of the most readable and entertaining early histories of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ever written.

While the primary purpose of this website is simply to put the book into the hands of more people, it's easy to imagine all of the incredibly cool features and enhancements that modern website technology could enable... and even cooler to imagine having the time to implement them all!

Site updates will likely be few and far between, but when they occur they'll be announced here in the Blog.

Enjoy the book and the site 500 Miles to Go... and don't forget to tell a friend!
