Butler Blue's Brickyard Dash: A Short Story

One of our favorite and most lovable mascots got behind the wheel at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway recently. Here is a short story.

So, we all know that Butler Blue, Butler's adorable mascot, is awesome. I even got the opportunity to meet him once. He's great!

But did you know that Butler Blue can also... get behind the wheel?

Hey now! This is going places. Butler Blue behind the wheel at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? It doesn't get much more Indiana than that, does it? Nothing short of Peyton Manning, Larry Bird, a pork tenderloin dinner and a dash of St. Elmo's famed horseradish-based cocktail sauce would be acceptable.

Y'all ready for this? They even Periscoped! We're extremely sorry for not bringing that to your attention. It was probably the greatest thing ever.

Wait a minute. You're telling me there IS video available of this after the fact?

As the great Warner Wolf says, "Let's go to the videotape!"

That's about the finest piece of video you will ever see.

And of course, what better way to end a lap at the Brickyard without a ceremonial kiss?

You're our boy, Blue.
