INDY 500 – Helio Castroneves, Indocil Art & The Andretti’s

I hate to make the first post on the bog almost a negative but it is killing me and I need to vent. I missed having a helmet in victory lane at the Indy 500! I got a call a few weeks ago asking if we wanted to add a new customer to our list of drivers. The driver was getting back into racing after having to be on the sidelines and needed his helmets painted. No problem except his helmets are based in a chrome finish and we wouldn’t be able to get it done in time for the 500. I went ahead and did one in a different finish to see if he would want it for a one off deal just for the 500. I did it but it wasn’t what he wanted to go with so we would just have to wait for his helmets to comeback from chrome. In the mean time Helio Castroneves won the damn Indianapolis 500!!! Missed seeing my helmet in victory lane at the 500!!!!!! Man the agony!!!!! Congratulations to Indocils newest driver though.2009-684

I did however get to see great coverage of our helmet for Marco Andretti. The only problem was the coverage came after he was wrecked in the first few laps ending his day abruptly. What a kick in the gut!

John Andretti had a good run in the Window World car driven for Richard Petty. It was great seeing the King in Indy. It looked like a perfect fit.
