Hardcore racing fans don't need to be told why the IMS is extraordinary, but a visit to the Indy 500 should be on everyone's bucket list for the experience alone, kind of like the Kentucky Derby, minus the hats. It's massive a party, steeped in tradition and lore, that virtually shuts down the whole city for the day. If you're not visiting on race day or for any events leading up to it, the IMS Museum provides a ton of artifacts and history that should get you feeling the passion.
“The epicenter of motorsports, 4 wheels or 2”
Established in 1909, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has long prevailed as an icon of motorsports excellence. Beginning in 2009, the Speedway celebrates its Centennial Era, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the facility in 2009 and the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 2011. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the world's largest spectator sporting facility. It plays host annually to three events in three major racing series: Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (IZOD IndyCar Series), Brickyard 400 (NASCAR Sprint Cup Series) and Red Bull Indianapolis GP (MotoGP World Championship). The Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 take place on the 2.5-mile oval, while the Red Bull Indianapolis GP is contested on the 16-turn, 2.621-mile road course.
