Month Of May Suffers Practice Cut Backs

The Indy 500 and Month Of May are no exception to the worldwide economic slowdown, and to help fight the cost IMS has cut back on its Month of May activities.
Glass Half Empty: Rookie orientation and Indy Lights Practice will come on Tuesday (5th) and Wednesday (6th) in 09′ apposed to the previous Sunday and Monday as it has been the past couple years. The next Monday and Tuesday will have no track activity as it has been the last couple years but this year there will be an added day of Wednesday with the cars in the garages.
Glass Half Full: All in all I count a total of 3 days being lost to the cut back, which isn’t terrible considering the economic times. The good news is that they are sticking with the 4 day, 2 weekend schedule, plus there will be an added hot air balloon race at the beginning of the month to commemorate the first ever race at IMS. My question is if IMS will cut back the price of Bronze Badges? ….I doubt it
