All gates open at 6AM and fans are encouraged to arrive by the time the gates open.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway president Doug Boles commented by saying:

Momentum from the 100th Running has carried over into this year’s race, and we expect our second-largest crowd in at least the last 20 years. “So we’re encouraging fans to get here early and take a little extra time to map out their route to the Speedway and fully plan their day at the track.

External parking lots open at 5AM on race day while internal lots open at 6AM.

Road closures will be in affect until at least teo hours following the chequered flag. The speedway have confirmed that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway museum will be open from 6AM.
