 Indianapolis,Indiana By Tom Botos and the date 3-14-09
 Hello Racefans on March 14th 2009 was the 14th annual Bench Racer's Weekend At the Crowne Plaza Hotel here in Indianpolis,Indiana. Racefans went on Racer's Shop Tours and had Lunch and Dinner together and listened to Steve Chassey as he was guest speaker after dinner on Saturday Evening. From 12 noon on all day racefans and historians sat and "bench raced" chatting about the good ole days of racing gone by! A great time was had by all as i chatted and met with Mutt Anderson who was crew chief for Everett Saylor who won the 1937 CSRA Big Car Championship. Mutt Anderson also chatted with several fans and drivers including Sonny Meyer a relative of Louie Meyer a former winner of the Indianapolis 500.


        There were several vendors on hand including Tom W. Williams author of "The Ghosts Of Jungle Park History,Myth,and Legend" selling copies of his 2nd Edition Book. Ted knorr also had his Racing Collectibles booth set up where yours truly bought many Jungle Park photos as I am totally captivated by that tracks history! Coming September 26th 2009 will be the Jungle Park Speedway reunion in Rockville ,Indiana. If you have not been to Jungle Park I urge you to "wander"Indiana and see a great part of our Indiana Racing History!
