INDIANAPOLIS — The Dodgers' Tommy Lasorda and all-time hits leader Pete Rose were among those attending their first Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.
"When I drive down the freeway, I'm scared, let alone go 220 mph," Lasorda, the former Dodgers' manager and now a team adviser, said of the Indy drivers' speeds. "That's unbelievable."
Before the race, Lasorda spent time with Indy driver Charlie Kimball, a Camarillo native and Dodgers fan who was starting 14th in the 33-car field.
"I have been to Indianapolis a lot of times but never to this event, and I am so impressed," Lasorda said.
