No military flyover for Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS -- Sequester woes red flagged the military fly-over at the Indianapolis 500.

Despite these cuts, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway promised fans will not be disappointed.

Speedway officials say they are talking with three organizations about a nonmilitary flyover for the May 26 race.

"There are folks who go to air shows and do other things. They are no longer active military aircraft, but that is what we are looking at moment," said Doug Boles.

Armed service members were also cut from the pre-race ceremony but officials say there will be some kind of tribute.
