(FERGUSON):
"ANYWHERE YOU LOOK, DURING THE UPCOMING 'INDY 500', YOU'LL SEE SOMETHING MADE FROM MATERIALS THAT STARTED OUT AS PETROLEUM: THE CHECKERED FLAG, COOLERS, SUNGLASSES, TENNIS-SHOES, AND--IF YOU'RE WATCHING FROM HOME--YOUR T-V.  THE RACETRACK IS EVEN MADE UP OF A MODERN ASPHALT-SKIN THAT ALLOWS FOR MUCH-BETTER TRACTION--AND, THEREFORE, MUCH-FASTER SPEEDS.  WHAT'S MORE, A RACE-CAR'S RACING-CHASSIS USES CARBON-FIBERS--AND THE DRIVERS' FIRE-RESISTANT CLOTHING, HELMETS, AND OTHER PROTECTIVE-GEAR ALL UTILIZE PETROLEUM-BASED PRODUCTS.  THIS INCLUDES THE ENTIRE OUTFIT--FROM THE 'HEAD-SOCK', TO THE GLOVES, TO THE HELMET, TO THEIR ONE-PIECE SUIT AND EVEN THEIR UNDERWEAR.  THE 'INDIANAPOLIS 500' IS FULL OF TRADITIONS--AND THIS IS ONE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST SPORTING-EVENTS:  FROM THE RACEWAY, TO STAGE-DECORATIONS, TO SPEAKERS FOR THE CONCERTS IN THE INFIELD--LIKE SO MANY OTHER EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS, IT'S ALL ABOUT ENERGY."
