"Missing My Baby" is a song released by American Tejano music recording artist Selena on her third studio album Entre a Mi Mundo (1992). It was composed by her brother A.B. Quintanilla III, the song's principal record producer. He wanted to showcase Selena's diverse musical abilities and to help her cross over into the English-speaking market; most of the album is Mexican pop and traditional Mexican songs. Critics praised her emotive enunciation in the song. "Missing My Baby" is a mid-tempo R&B ballad influenced by urban and soul music. The lyrics talk about the narrator's love for her boyfriend and how much she misses him. Although never intended to be released as a single, the track peaked at number 22 on the US Rhythmic Top 40 chart in 1995. The track was one of the first songs to be played by radio stations after Selena was shot and killed by her friend, the former manager of her boutiques, on March 31, 1995. A posthumous music video made for cable network VH1 was released in 1998 to promote the triple box-set Anthology (1998). (Full article...)

Indianapolis Motor Speedway poster

A 1909 poster for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a raceway in Speedway, Indiana, which first opened on August 12 of that year. Constructed in a period of five months for $3 million, the track is relatively flat, two-and-a-half miles (four kilometers) long, and oval in shape. The speedway has changed little since it first opened, although a modern infield road course was completed in 2000. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts such races as the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
