What is a Bronze Badge?

It’s the best value in motorsports. The Bronze Badge grants you garage access during the Month of May as well as gate admission except Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis and Indy 500 Race Days.

This is a great way for fans to be able to get closer to the drivers and see all the action at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the month. For fans that plan to be at the Speedway for multiple days, this is a great way to save money on gate admission.

With your month long access to Gasoline Alley you will be able to get up close and personal with the drivers and mechanics of the Indy 500 and the Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. For 100 years, Verizon IndyCar Series teams have relocated their race teams to Gasoline Alley for the month of May. In this area, mechanics tune and repair race cars just inches away from fans.
