INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck brought some of his teammates for their first visit to the famed oval on Wednesday.
Luck was at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after an invite from driver Charlie Kimball, who is taking part in the quarterback's Go Play initiative. He was finishing school at Stanford last May, so he wasn't able to get out to IMS after being drafted by the Colts a month earlier.
"I want to see it. As a sports fan it's awesome to see a spectacle like this, a stadium like this and to see how different athletes operate, how a team, a racecar team works as compared to a football team, so hopefully it will be fun, but a little educational for us," Luck said.
The QB has lived in Indianapolis one year and already knows the importance sports plays in the fabric of the community.
"Every day you realize more and more how important the IMS is to this city. The people I meet that don't live in Indianapolis, whether in Europe or elsewhere around the country, probably every other time they ask about the 500, and all that does is further this city's great identity," Luck said.
Luck said he's got a commitment Memorial Day weekend and will miss the race, but it's high on his bucket list of things to do in his new hometown.
