Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation President and CEO Jeff Belskus

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will continue to reach out to its fans through a new video blog featuring IMS President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Belskus.

Fans are encouraged to post questions, comments and ideas for Belskus, along with their name and hometown, at the Official IMS Blog, blog.indianapolismotorspeedway.com.

Belskus will answer selected submissions periodically in an IMS video blog series called the IMS Fan Connection, providing fans with a direct connection with the leader of The Greatest Race Course in the World.

“I’m excited about participating in the IMS Fan Connection,” Belskus said. “The Internet and the rise of social media give us an even better avenue to communicate directly with our great fans and answer their questions and concerns and respond to their feedback directly. I hope this will be fun and informative for everyone – I’m certainly looking forward to it.”

To start the conversation for the first edition of the IMS Fan Connection, fans are encouraged to post their ideas about how IMS should celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 in 2011.
