A big thanks to all!

As the "Co-Host" for the Indy Event, I want to thank each and every smart owner that participated. We had a great turnout, with an official total of 127 smarts in attendance and at least a couple 'smarties' from our friends north of the border. We even had a non-smart owner fly in from Seattle just for this event.

Also, I would like to thank smart center Indianapolis, our other Co-Host Walter Grassi...brand manager as well as Linda Pettenaro...brand principal, Ryan aka "SMART" of SCOA for his contributions and of course a big THANK YOU to Mr Russ Hill, V.P. of smart USA who also flew in just to attend our event.

This of course was our maiden voyage and was not without incidents and glitches. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. We were blessed with great weather and everyone seemed to really enjoy mingling with other smart owners and taking in the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Our hopes are that the "Second Annual" meet will be even bigger and better.

Thanks again to all for making "smart Goes to the Indy 500 Track" a big success!!!!!
