This weekend is the Indianapolis 500. I once attended an auto race and enjoyed it tremendously, though I confess (and this is a blot on my country music credentials) to not following that particular sport in all of its no-doubt interesting varieties. But I remember as a child getting together with the whole Veith clan at the family farm in Tonkawa, huddling around a short wave radio to hear the broadcast of the Indianapolis 500. My father had a distant cousin, Bob Veith, who would be in that race, and we would always root for him. I was pleased to discover that, though, he never won that particular race, Bob nevertheless rates a Wikipedia article for his racing career: Go here.
