David Letterman admits he's morning drunk at Indy 500 (Video)

David Letterman Is Bald, Bearded and Unrecognizable in New Pics On a Jog

David Letterman is already celebrating with champagne at the Indianapolis 500 — or maybe it's tequila, rum or even something more exotic.

"By the way, I'm drunk now," he said Saturday morning on ESPN's "SportsCenter," one day ahead of the big Brickyard race — the 100th to-date.

The co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing was in town — and in a racing jacket — for the sold-out Sunday spectacle.Watch the brief Vine at the bottom of this post for the early admission.

Clearly, the ex-CBS host plans on his driver winning tomorrow. If the team falls short, there will be highly personal consequences for the comedian.

"If we don't win ... I have every intention of faking my own death," Letterman said. "I know a fellow who will remove my fingerprints. I have a post office box somewhere on the planet, that's all I can tell ya."
