Everyone is encouraged to help Indiana families by participating in the “1 Lap, 1 Great Cause” food drive, which aims to gather enough canned and non-perishable food to complete one lap around the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval.

IMS is conducting the food drive Tuesday, Oct. 19 through Wednesday, Nov. 10 with Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Approximately 13,200 pieces of canned or non-perishable food are needed to line one lap around the historic, 2.5-mile oval at IMS on Saturday, Nov. 13.

“We encourage everyone to help Indiana families by participating in the ‘1 Lap, 1 Great Cause’ food drive,” said Jeff Belskus, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation president and chief executive officer. “The generosity of loyal race fans never ceases to inspire us, and we anticipate that they will again reach out to help us lap the track and provide hope and food for Hoosiers in need.”
