If you have ever watched any of the T.V. show, Gene Simmons, Family Jewels you have surely seen Gene Simmons wear the black hat with the Logo, I Am Indy. This is the marketing campaign that Gene helped create for the Indy Racing League.
Sunday’s are usually reserved for Motorsports at the Hard Rock Hideout. A few short weeks ago, My wife and I were are the Indy Race at the Kentucky Speedway. I can safely say that Gene’s marketing campaign is well in place. Banners, flags, hats, and t-shirts all emblazoned with Gene’s catch phrase, “I Am Indy”.
Gene Simmons was at the track, and I had an infield pass, but I did not catch even a glimpse of the infamous rock star. I did however take some pretty good pictures of IRL stars, Danica Patrick, Helio Castroneves, 3 Time IRL Champion, Sam Hornisch Jr. and 2007 Indy 500 winner, Dario Franchitti.
You can view those pictures here.

I also took the video below. Enjoy!
Tony Kanaan won the race on this day. The race ended with a hellacious crash right in front of us. I didn’t take this video, but this is worth seeing. Dario Franchitti goes airborne at the end of the race. Check it out!
