Occasionally the Speedway plays host to special VIP experiences for race fans. Actor, producer and director, Rob Reiner, just happened be that special fan today! Just to name a few, Reiner has directed When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride and Stand By Me.
Reiner arrived with his entourage of close family and friends this afternoon to get a behind the scenes look at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They were then treated to hot laps in a Chevy Camaro driven by IZOD IndyCar Series driver, Sarah Fisher. Sarah was happy to take them around the track, top speed maxing out at about 130 MPH!
Upon exiting the car after his hot laps Reiner was speechless! Reiner said, “Oh my god! And we were going 100 miles per hour slower than they [drivers] go!”
Reiner and his family then toured the Pagoda and Hall of Fame Museum. Another great day to be a race fan at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
