In honor of Presidents' Day (week), we had the opportunity to sit down with Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles and talk about everything from the IMS, to the Indy 500, to his favorite types of races, his favorite types of cars, and just fun stories swapped between fans. We, of course, have always been huge fans of his, pretty sure after this interview everyone will be just as happy as we are that this is the guy running the IMS. #IsItMayYet
