Value-Packed Bronze Badges Available Now for IMS Insider Access during May 2018

Bronze Badges for the Month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, one of the most treasured keepsakes and best values in sports, are available for fans seeking insider access to the INDYCAR Grand Prix and 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

A Bronze Badge provides gate admission and Gasoline Alley access every day IMS is open during May except for Race Days for the INDYCAR Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

Fans with Bronze Badges get behind the scenes in the garage area, where they can interact with drivers, see the new-for-2018 Verizon IndyCar Series cars up close and much more. They also provide even more value for fans who visit the track many days during May.

“The Month of May is magical for every fan,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “But a Bronze Badge provides a special window into historic Gasoline Alley, the heart of the off-track action during May. Fans with Bronze Badges get it all – watching practice and qualifying featuring the sleek new Indy car and incredible access to drivers, teams and their machines in the garage area.”

Bronze Badges can be purchased at ims.com/bronzebadge for $135 each through March 31. The price increases to $150 on April 1, so order today while supplies last. Each Bronze Badge holder must be 18 or older and is required to sign a waiver.

Junior Garage Credentials also are available for fans from ages 9-17 looking to see their heroes up close. They can be purchased for $75 by calling the IMS Credential Office at 317-492-6500.

A signed consent and liability release form from a parent or guardian must be presented in the credentials office at the time of purchase, and the minor must be present. Junior Garage Credentials also include gate access for all days in May except for Race Days for the INDYCAR Grand Prix and Indianapolis 500.

For more information on Bronze Badges and Junior Garage Credentials, call the IMS Credential Office at 317-492-6500.

Cardboard or laminate badges were used from the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911 through 1937, assigned only to event participants. Beginning in 1938, more durable metal badges were used before IMS Bronze Badges made their debut in 1947 and were initially sold to the general public in the early 1990s, immediately becoming a coveted motorsports collectible.
