They were in town as part of the Veterans day parade and stuck around for the street party. They got on top of several boats along Duval and was very touching. Being a scotsman I cannot get enough bagpipe music on a typical day let alone a week with so much tragedy. I thought it was a very class act, much like Stihl and Motley Crew's side-by-side tribute 3 laps during sunday's race. RIP

The drum in the video says Wantagh Pipe Band. Here is a link to their website.

They also have a FaceBook page.

That was nice. Was that plane flying by part of the tribute as well?

I was standing 20 feet from the person shooting this video and it was definately a touching tribute.

I just got home from pulling Hammertime back from Key West going through Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. From toll booth operators, people at gas stations, and people in resturants..... There was not one time that I stopped that someone didn't come up to me and ask about the three racers that passed.
