'The Joker' Plays Carb Day at Indy 500 in 2017

From the May 27, 2017, Indy Star. Dave Lindquist.

"For sing-along tunes and a feel-good atmosphere, Indianapolis Motor Speedway hired the right Carb Day headliner in the Steve Miller Band.

"Vocalist-guitarist Steve Miller, looking fit at 73, brought Friday's Indianapolis Motor Speedway party to a close with a run of enduring radio hits "The Joker,"  "Fly Like An Eagle" and "Rock 'N Me."

"An estimated audience of 20,000 inside Turn 4 kept the mood light, which followed an example set by opening band Barenaked Ladies.

"Known for the songs "One Week" and "If I Had $1,000,000," Canada's Barenaked Ladies improvised a song about one fan's 'beer snake' that towered above the crowd at perhaps 20 taped-together cans."

We had a blast at this event and were sitting near a beer snake as there were several being built.

Ric Flair, pro-wrestling icon got up and really amazed.

This Friday, we will be seeing the groups Blues Traveler and Train perform at Carb Day.
