A visit to the famed Speedway

After today’s work we got to ride around the 2 1/2 mile oval at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where they run the Indianapolis 500. The track is huge. Although we didn’t have our bikes, it would have taken us 10 to 15 minutes to bike around the track! Also pictured is the altar at Cornerstone Lutheran Church.

The rain stopped just before we headed out this morning. Rain was forecast for the early afternoon but it held off for me to complete my century. First hour was battling the traffic to get out of the Indianapolis area. Then we were in the corn and soybean fields the rest of the day. I did manage to find one interesting picture. If you look at the sign, it’s the Bob-tanical Gardens and Zoo-illogical Park.

JIM HARTMAN: Build day in Indianapolis

Build day in Indianapolis
July 15, 2024

By Jim Hartman

Today we’re working at three homes near Indianapolis. This Fuller Center chapter has built 33 homes in the area. Companies like Rolls-Royce and Allison Transmission supply some of the funds and manpower to support the local chapter. 
 
The picture below shows a house (on the right) that was built in 2023 for an 18 year old mother of 3 who’s rent was being raised to an unaffordable (for her) $650 month. She is now paying back a $70,000 loan for the house at 0% interest at an affordable $450 per month. She will have the loan paid off in about 15 years. On the left is a vacant lot that will hold another Fuller Center house before the end of the year.
