CLICK HERE to visit the Know Your Zone Info Page

Fans attending the Red Bull Indianapolis GP on August 17-19 are encouraged to plan for heavy traffic and follow the KNOW YOUR ZONE driving routes and parking program established by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Fans should plan their routes ahead of time for an easier, more efficient drive to the track. The KNOW YOUR ZONE program is designed to help Speedway guests identify the best driving routes to parking lots located near their respective seating locations.

Fans attending the three-day Red Bull Indianapolis GP at IMS will find infield parking limited due to the road-course setup used for the event. Fans in cars and trucks and on motorcycles wanting to park within the 2 ½-mile oval are encouraged to enter from 30th Street and enter the North Tunnel Gate/Gate 10. Cars and trucks will be directed to park in the infield near Turn 3 of the oval. Free motorcycle parking is available on the backstretch of the oval. Fans riding motorcycles with reserved seats who purchased parking passes for the IMS Hall of Fame Museum parking lot will be directed to that lot. All parking lots north of 25th Street along Georgetown Road will be closed for this event.

The track opens at 7 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19 for the for the Moto3 race at 11 a.m., the Moto2 race at 12:20 p.m., the Red Bull Indianapolis GP at 2 p.m. and the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series race at 3:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to leave early Sunday to arrive at IMS in time to experience pre-race activities and the start of the races.

“All Roads Lead to Indy” driving routes have been created by the Indiana State Police and match KNOW YOUR ZONE colors at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway:

  • Orange: The southern end of IMS.
  • Red: The northern end of IMS.
  • Green: Between the Orange (southern) and Red (northern) zones.


For more information about the KNOW YOUR ZONE program, including details about special ticket and parking packages, visit www.indianapolismotorspeedway.com/knowyourzone.

Eastbound U.S. 136 will have two lanes of through traffic and a designated left-turn lane to northbound I-465 and westbound I-74. Westbound Crawfordsville Road will have two lanes of through traffic and a designated left-turn lane to southbound I-465.

IMS officials, INDOT and law enforcement officials want fans to be aware of new ramp configurations where Interstate 74 and U.S. 136/Crawfordsville Road meet the I-465 loop. I-74 no longer ends at Crawfordsville Road, as the former cloverleaf exit has been redesigned since last year’s race to provide safer, higher-speed ramps connecting I-74 with I-465. To view an illustration of the new interchange, please visit www.Accelerate465.in.gov.

INDOT encourages visitors to follow posted signs. On Race Day, INDOT’s Traffic Management Center will advise race fans for the safest and quickest route to the track via lighted dynamic message signs. Motorists who choose to exit I-465 or I-74 directly into Speedway should follow the signs to the new U.S. 136/Crawfordsville Road ramps, which are controlled by signalized intersections.

Drivers can learn the locations of work zones and highway restrictions by calling INDOT’s TrafficWise at 1-800-261-ROAD (7623) or viewing an online map at www.TrafficWise.IN.gov. The Indiana State Police will offer updates on traffic and parking on Twitter: @indstatepolice, and Facebook at: Indiana State Police – Public Information Office.

No coolers larger than 14 inches by 14 inches by 14 inches can be brought into the facility during any of the three days of the Red Bull Indianapolis GP.
