This is America's biggest sporting crowd, and through it run moods ranging from fiesta to bloodlust. Small wonder the 500 is the most photographed of all events. As the scenes at right and on the following pages show, the camera is a call to mug, prance a bit or pose pensively, as if to document one's individuality or be lost forever in the throng.
