Burn Ban At The Kroger Super Weekend At The Brickyard

A significant fire hazard remains in all areas of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway due to persistently dry environmental conditions and the absence of significant rainfall. Due to the aforementioned conditions the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is instituting a burn ban that adheres to the burn ban put in place on June 28th, 2012 by the Town of Speedway. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway burn ban prohibits open burning such as comfort fires or camp fires of any kind. Fireworks and grilling devices that use a source of ignition other than gas are also not permitted.

The following ignition sources will not be permitted on Indianapolis Motor Speedway property during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard event from July 25th – July 30th, 2012:

  • Comfort fires or camp fires on the ground or in elevated devices
  • Charcoal or any non-gas grills of any kind
  • Fireworks of any kind

 
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway asks all customers camping on or around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway property to be careful concerning the potential threat of ignition to dry areas of grass that could be caused by common sources of heat and fire that are permitted such as: cigarettes, recreational vehicle generator exhaust, vehicle engine heat, fluids from hot vehicle engines and gas grills.
 
Gas grills are permitted in camping and tailgating areas during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard event, but are required to be operated at a minimum of 18 inches off the ground, with 36 inches off the ground being the preferred height for the safest usage.
 
The Speedway Fire Department will assist in patrols and education of customers during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard event concerning the Town of Speedway burn ban as well as the burn ban initiated by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to ensure a safe environment for all customers attending the event.
