Grand Prix of Indianapolis History
The Grand Prix of Indianapolis, the new IndyCar Series event May 8-10, 2014 on the reconfigured Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, will jump-start Month of May activities at IMS and build toward the 98th Indianapolis 500 later in the month.
Many officials and dignitaries unveiled details about the first IndyCar Series road race at IMS during a media conference Oct. 1 at the Speedway, including Hulman & Company Chief Executive Officer Mark D. Miles, IMS President J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, legendary IndyCar Series team owner Roger Penske, 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan and IndyCar Series race winner Graham Rahal.
“The Grand Prix of Indianapolis is all about elevating the Month of May, the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar Series with more thrilling content for our loyal supporters and new fans,” Miles said. “This will be a very different event than the ‘500’ and will be one of three major weekends of excitement at IMS in May, all leading into the 98th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 25.”
