Governor Palin tweeted links a little while ago to photos taken at the Indy 500 that are posted on her Facebook page (from which the photos below were retrieved).

She also posted a link to this Twitter Pic:

Governor Palin and husband Todd are attending the Indy 500 over the weekend as a guest of 1963 Indy winner Parnelli Jones.

Checkered-flag festivities were in full swing on the eve of the Indianapolis 500 Saturday, as stars waved to fans from floats during the IPL 500 Festival Parade in the afternoon and dressed up with civic leaders and race team owners for the Regions 500 Festival Snakepit Ball at night.

‘Bucket list’ ride

While parade preparations were under way, former vice presidential candidate  and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, toured Indianapolis Motor Speedway and got a ride around its famed 2½-mile oval.

They were guests of 1963 Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones.

Jones, who is being honored at the track today  on the 50th anniversary year of his Indy 500 win, has befriended the couple and said he is planning to go caribou (reindeer) hunting with Todd in August.

“She’s a real game gal, and her husband, Todd, is a macho guy, and they wanted to do it,” Jones said after the Palins took their ride in a Chevy Camaro.

The ride is “bucket list stuff,” Palin said.

She likely will watch the Indy 500’s first pit stop from team owner Sarah Fisher’s pit and then watch the rest in a Pagoda suite.

“I’m anxious to see the stands full. That’s a spectacular sight, having watched it on TV all these years, growing up,” Palin said. “We’re motorheads, so that’s kind of our thing. Our daughter’s (Piper Palin) middle name is Indy. … I wish our kids were here.”
