INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence gave Indianapolis 500 fans a big surprise on Fast Friday.
He tried to be just a regular guy.
The article goes on to state the following:
The former Indiana governor mingled with folks, signed autographs, posed for photos after making an impromptu stroll to Gasoline Alley and then to the pit wall at his favorite track.
“We didn’t know if he was going to walk to the garage or not,” Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles said. “But he said, ‘I’d like to visit the team garages’ and then he said ‘I’m not leaving till I walk out on pit lane.’”
Pence didn’t make an ordinary track visit.
He flew in on Air Force 2, took a motorcade to the track and was surrounded by his protective detail throughout a one-hour visit.
But it was far different from last year’s race when he was kept at a distance from fans. Pence has attended the 500 more than 30 times.
