Why even bother turning left?

The Indy 500 was this weekend (I learned when I laid out the Monday sports section), which got me thinking: What if the drivers took off from the starting line and drove 500 miles in any direction they wanted?

If they somehow could drive in a perfectly straight line without hitting any obstacles, this is how far they’d get. It’s a huge range, reaching 24(!) states, Washington, D.C. and the province of Ontario.
