INDIANAPOLIS (21Alive) – It was the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500, but this year was an extra special occasion for two lucky fans who got a front row seat with Colts quarterback Andrew luck.
Luck, along with 11-year old Makenzi Rooksberry, and 14-year old Johliel Austin from Riley Hospital for Children, flew into turn one of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the IU Health Lifeline helicopter greeted by thousands of spectators.
Then the trio buckled up and took a ride they soon won't forget in the official Indy 500 pace car.
Makenzi is from Jasonville, Ind. and came to Riley after a sledding accident.
Johliel was chosen as a representative of "Change of Play". Change of Play" is a health and wellness program for schools created by Luck and Riley Hospital.
This was Andrew Luck's first Indy 500.
