IMS honors YOU with your own day at the Speedway


Right. Many of you within the sound of my voice live in the shadow of the greatest 560 acres on the planet. "Jea-lous." I digress.

That means you're busy, Wednesday. You'll be honored, as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway rolls out the proverbial red carpet for you, and as many peeps as you can scare up, on 500 Festival Community Day.

Why you won't want to miss it. For a pitiful 8 bones, in advance, 10, at the door (little ones under 6, FREE, BTW) you get ALL this:
  • Take a lap around the speedway in YOUR OWN ride
  • Tour Pit Lane 
  • Take in the sights of the official timing and scoring area in the Pagoda 
  • Grab an autograph from your favorite Indy 500 drivers
  • Plus—wait for it—you receive FREE admission to the world-renowned Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum®
A blast for the kiddos. Check the deets here. Schedule of events, shown below. And, hey. The Social Media Garage door will be open, so pull in and take a load off. 

Tell The Man who's boss—get out there. It's your day at the Speedway!
