A heart-felt congratulations goes out to one of the nicest IndyCar drivers I have ever met, Ed Carpenter. He won the pole position for the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500. (The race will kick off shortly after noon EST on Sunday, May 26.) Ed will be trying to take advantage of the pole position to finish better than his Indy 500 best finish of fifth place in 2008.
P.S. Some of you may recall that I posted a free download in July 2012 of a Facebook cover photo of Ed Carpenter's Fuzzy's Premium Vodka race car. That download is still available and is re-posted here for your benefit:
