A US Today pole of their readers has named the Indianapolis 500 as the best motorsports event. The publication which has a daily circulation of over 3 million conducted the survey in conjunction with travel website, 10Best.com.
Speaking about the award, president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway J Douglas Boles commented saying:
We’re happy to agree with the readers of USA TODAY and 10Best.com – there’s nothing on Earth quite like the prestige, tradition, power and excitement of the Indianapolis 500. “The race continues to enjoy positive momentum and growth since the landmark 100th Running in 2016. Thanks to everyone who voted for the ‘500,’ and we will continue to work every day to ensure fans enjoy a fun, memorable experience every May at IMS.
The Indianapolis 500 is the biggest single day sporting event on the plant and the race fought off competition from the Daytona 500, The Monaco Grand Prix and the LeMans 24 Hours to win the award.
This year’s 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 was won by Team Penske’s Will Power.
