Speedway Police arrest 23 during Brickyard weekend (Update)UPDATE A reader writes, Dear AR1.com, Now I know that the Brickyard 400 has lost it luster. Only 23 NASCAR bubba's arrested for the brickyard indicates it is going down hill. My cousin sent me an email and he said the crowd was estimated at 75,000. They must have counted everybody that was in the place including the people who left early and were walking outside the track to their car. Maybe next year the Speedway and NASCAR should pass out No-Dose to the fans as they come in to keep them awake during 400 miles of sheer boredom. I bet the fans who were at the race passed more cars on their way home than passes that were made for the lead during the race. Mike Martin, Ohio
