Garage Access/Bronze Badge

Bronze Badge
Why should you purchase a Bronze Badge?

It’s the best way to get autographs! Get closer to the drivers by getting access to the Garage Area. For the Indianapolis 500 and Grand Prix of Indianapolis ONLY, fans can purchase access to the historic Gasoline Alley, also known as the Garage Area.

You also get month-long access to the IMS Gasoline Alley, where you'll be able to get up close and personal with the drivers and mechanics of the Indianapolis 500 and the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. For nearly 100 years, Indy 500 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. Only credentialed Bronze Badge holders get this level of access.

Remember to get your Bronze Badges quickly, because they are limited. We recommend you order early by mail. Lost or stolen Bronze Badges or coupons cannot be replaced, and there are no refunds.
