Things that happened at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Snake Pit in the 60s 70s and 80s brings up memories and secrets that were sworn to be taken to the grave.

According to Indy 500 historian Donald Davidson, IMS officials made many attempts to tame the party because it would constantly get out of hand.
