The Indianapolis 500. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was first built in 1909. The track surface was rebuilt using over 3 million bricks after 2 fatal accidents were caused by the breakup of the original tar and asphalt surface. This is why the racetrack has the nickname of "The Brickyard." Races were held during the Memorial Day weekend in 1910 but the first official Indy 500 race was held during the Memorial Day weekend in 1911. By 1938 most of the track had been repaved with asphalt again.

That would be the Indianapolis 500 run every year over the Memorial Day weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana. The speedway was first built in the spring and summer of 1909 with a gravel and tar track surface. Very soon the asphalt breaking up led to two fatal accidents. The track was then repaved in the fall of 1909 with 3.2 million bricks earning the race course the nickname of "The Brickyard." A 200 mile race was held over the Memorial Day weekend in 1910. The first Indianapolis 500 was run on Memorial Day, May 30, 1911 and has become an annual event over the Memorial Day weekend. In 1961 only the main straight was resurfaced with asphalt except for a 3-foot wide section at the start/finish line that was left with the bricks showing. Since then the entire 2.5 mile track (except for the 3-foot section of bricks) has been resurfaced in 1976, 1988, 1995 and 2004.

What can you bring to the Brickyard 400?

This is from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway web site, you can bring in coolers, drinks, food, tobacco, alcohol, or anything else that is not illegal. Glass bottles or containers are not allowed since they pose a danger if broken. Since 9/11, they now will ask you to open your cooler so that they can check it. (This applies to bags and backpacks too.) Also, since space is limited on the crowded race day, you are not supposed to take a cooler that is larger than 14" x 14" x14" into the stands. That is a cooler that can hold a 12-pack. If you are parking in the infield of the speedway, you may choose to tailgate or picnic and so you might also bring a charcoal grill with you and whatever else you need. You can bring in a beer keg if you want! Just don't take a large cooler into the stands on race day. Of course if you try to walk in with one on race day, they won't allow it.

Who owned the Indy 500 racetrack in 1967?

Shaw then sent out letters to the automobile industry to try to find a buyer. All the responses indicated that the Speedway would be turned into a private facility for the buyer. Shaw then looked around for someone to buy the Speedway who understood what it was about. He found Terre Haute, Indiana businessman Tony Hulman. Meetings were set up and the purchase of the Speedway happened on November 14, 1945. Though not officially commented on, the purchase price for the Speedway was reported by the Indianapolis Star and News to be $750,000. Major renovations and repairs were made at a quick pace to the frail Speedway before the 1946 race. Since then and up to today, the Speedway continues to grow. Stands have been built and remodelled many times over, suites and museums were added, and many other additions helped bring back Indy's reputation as a great track.*
