The drama at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been a bit intense the last few days. First, bump day when we weren’t sure which of the Rahal Letterman Lanigan drivers would be out of the race. Jack Harvey went out and did what no one expected and went faster with a warm engine. He bumped out Graham Rahal with no time left on the clock for Graham to make another attempt. Then during Mondays practice, Katherine Legge and Stefan Wilson hit the wall and unfortunately Stefan broke a vertebrae and is not able to race on Sunday. In a wild turn of events, Graham Rahal will be driving for Stefan.
Thankfully, Stefan is doing as well as can be expected. He is scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday. It’s not been said but I am hopeful for a full recovery for him. Graham will be driving the No. 24 Dreyer & Reinbold/ Cusick Motorsports car and while we all wish it was Stefan, it is good to have Graham in the race. I said in my previous post it has left me feeling a bit numb. It’s hard to be happy for Graham knowing that Stefan is hurt. Knowing that Stefan is doing well though and is in good spirits definitely helps.
So to help us all get ready for the 107th Indianapolis 500 I have put together a playlist with songs and sound bites that I hope you all will enjoy. They are all from YouTube and you will need to download the Musi app. It is a free app and I have really enjoyed how easy it is to use since my son told me about it. I hope you enjoy the playlist. It includes some of my favorites.
Since I first began this post we have learned that Stefan’s surgery went well and that is indeed cause to celebrate.
Sounds like the surgery went very well for Stefan Wilson. Now the healing process begins.

So thankful. Sounds like it will be about three months of rehab- was it Marshall that said that?
