Dampen Enthusiasm of Race Fans INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — They don't call it the Snake Pit for nothing. The hardest-partying fans of the Indianapolis 500 typically inhabit a loud and crowded section near the fourth turn. During Sunday's race their domain, soaked by pounding Saturday night rains, was a sea of mud and muck, "We saw one guy that looked like he was moonwalking," said Kelley Ferree, who watched the crowd from a wooden platform that had been placed on top of a yellow van. Fans were slipping and sliding as they made their way to their seats and other revelers watched, waiting for someone to lose their footing. Ferree's friend, Jack Pierce, had a pair of binoculars and a camera, just in case someone took a really good spill. "You've gotta come prepared," said Pierce, of Springfield, 111. Ferree and Pierce weren't the only ones enjoying the mud. Brian Rugg of Danville flopped around in one of the many large puddles, throwing chunks of mud at anyone who passed by. His entire body was covered in muck and his efforts to clean his face with some of the muddy water did not have much effect. Rugg tried to get others to join him in the mud, but got no takers. A few people took pictures of him, though. Jim Williams of Boston said people such as Rugg were what brought him to the Indianapolis 500 for the first time. "He's crazy, he's having fun," Williams said. "I'm expecting a. lot of craziness. Actually, I expected a little worse." Williams wasn't the only one.

Instead of the usual short-shorts, cutoffs and halter tops, fans wore jeans and sweatshirts and carried umbrellas. People were still barbecuing and drinking in the infield parking lots, but the partying was low-key. The rain might have had something to do with that, said Sgt. Ron Hotseller of the Marion County Sheriff's Department. "I think the rain calmed everyone down," Hotseller said. "It's just been dead, which is fine with us. If it gets sunny and gets warmer, it'll get crazy," The crowds may have been calmer, but there was no shortage of colorful people. Dan Peddycord of Momence, 111., had a friend shave "Indy 500" in the hair on his back before making the trip to Indianapolis. People stopped and stared, and Peddycord said he hasn't had so many people ask for his photograph since he was a child. "I can't do tattoos, there's no way," Peddycord said, holding up his hairy arms. "So..." Tim Hentz, Mike Knapke and Howard Lepple spent the morning atop their black-and-white checkerboard truck. The truck also sported "Indy 500" and "Snakepit" in red on the sides. The trio said they painted the truck before leaving their hometown of Cincinnati, and plan to add something more to it each race. The colorful fans are just as big a part of the Indianapolis 500 experience as the race itself, said Brad Zuber of Atlanta, who hasn't missed a race since 1969. "It's the whole day itself, it's not just the race," Zuber said. "There's just something about a day at Indy." Members of the Cass County Local Coordinating Council of the Governor's Commission for a Drug-Free Indiana want to know what local residents think about the community's drug problems.
