There's really going to be an Indy car race through the streets of Boston this summer

The crazy thing to me is that turn No. 8 is underground, beneath the Westin hotel.  Imagine the worst-case scenario if some sort of massive pile-up occurs in the tunnel?  Some people around here were freaking about the possibility of the Olympics coming to town, I can't even imagine the opposition to this (and the cluster-f it's going to create in the seaport).  Well played by whoever is in charge to schedule it on Labor Day weekend though, probably the three days of the year when the most residents are out of the city.
