Here we go! It is finally the month of May which means only one thing, the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge is THIS MONTH! For the first time since 2019 fans will be in attendance at the Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and government officials in Indiana announced recently that the track will have 135,000 fans in attendance at the race.

President of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway J Douglas Boles has urged fans attending the race to get their COVID-19 vaccine ahead of the race and the Speedway has just come out of a month of being a mass vaccination center.
