The Big Bang Theory

We're believers. 

Everyone likes getting a deal and, in this writer's opinion, there's none better than that offered by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis in May.

What you'll receive: 
3 days unapologetically crammed, start to finish, with Verizon IndyCar Series and Mazda Road to Indy goodness. One formula giving way to another in a near-seamless ballet.

What you'll pay: 
Uh, nothing for Thursday—it's FREE. That's right. Friday general admission is just $20. Saturday—race day—only $25. 

Sure, you can spend more, if that's what balloons your tires, but the point is, you don't have to to have a fantastic time—and be a part of history. Full deets on tickets here.

ATTENTION PARENTS. Class is in session:

Children 12 and under will receive free general admission to any IMS event in 2014 when accompanied by an adult general admission ticket holder. Any individual, regardless of age, must have a ticket for a Reserved Seating area.

Well, I'll be darned.

Racing, and that includes simply watching it, can be pricey. If you like getting the most bang for your fandom buck, sure seems like the #GPofIndy has some explosive potential.
