Drive a Single Seater or Ride in a Two Seater

The Indy Racing Experience Driving Program gives each customer the chance to learn what it is like to drive a real IndyCar Series car that has competed in the famed Indianapolis 500 and Grand Prix of Indianapolis. They’ll feel the rush of excitement as they follow a lead Verizon IndyCar Series car around the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Speeds are dependent upon each customer's comfort level in the car.

The Indy Racing Experience Two-Seat Ride allows the passenger to experience speeds and g-forces previously available to only a handful of elite drivers. The purpose-built Dallara chassis allows a passenger to sit behind the driver, but in every other way, this is a true Verizon IndyCar Series car. The car is complete with an authentic racing engine that can power the car up to 180 mph and is available for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval and road course.

A selected number of Indy Racing Experience days are available at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Call (888) 357-5002 or visit www.indyracingexperience.com for more information or to make reservations.

If you and your friends, motorcycle club members or colleagues need to purchase tickets, call the Group Sales team at (866) 221-8775 to inquire if your group is eligible for the track lap!

Miles Ahead Teen Driver Training

Each year in the United States, approximately three thousand teenage drivers are fatally injured and hundreds of thousands more suffer debilitating injuries as a result of auto collisions.  In fact, statistics show that a new teenage driver has an 89% chance of having a collision of some kind in the first three years of driving. 
The Miles Ahead Teen Driving Intensive is a special instructional program conducted specifically for licensed teenage drivers and held exclusively at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Taught by professional racecar drivers from the Mazda Road to Indy and the IndyCar Series, teen drivers will receive professional, behind-the-wheel training in order to be better prepared for the hazards of driving on public roads.

On certain class dates you may combine your half-day Miles Ahead program with an IMS Grounds Tour, or an Indy Racing Experience Two-Seater Ride or Singe-Seater IndyCar drive for the ultimate IMS family experience.

The Miles Ahead Teen Driving Intensive is conducted from early spring through late fall.  You may register to attend on the company’s web site at www.bemilesahead.net.



Grounds Tours

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum will continue its popular Grounds Tour in 2014.

Tickets are available for the Grounds Tour, a great opportunity from March through November to entertain family, friends or clients with a 90-minute tour rich in IMS history and landmarks.

Knowledgeable Hall of Fame Museum staff members serve as hosts for the Grounds Tour, providing tour participants with a narrated historical journey through the decades at the “Racing Capital of the World” along with visits to notable IMS landmarks normally open only to officials, drivers and teams during events.

Grounds Tour guests will visit the timing-and-scoring suite in the Pagoda, the Media Center, Victory Podium, Gasoline Alley garage area and the world-famous “Yard of Bricks” at the start/finish line.

Guests also will tour the Hall of Fame Museum and enjoy a ride around the famed 2.5-mile IMS oval in one of the Museum’s comfortable tour buses, culminating with a stop at the “Yard of Bricks.”

The 2014 Grounds Tour schedule are listed below. Tours are scheduled to depart from the Hall of Fame Museum four times per day on scheduled tour days: 9:30 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 3 p.m. (ET).

Times and dates of every Grounds Tour are subject to change.

The Hall of Fame Museum is located in the IMS infield, just inside the main gate (Gate 2) off 16th Street. Tickets for the tour also include admission to the Museum and are $25 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-15 and free for children age 5 and younger. Cash, travelers’ checks, personal checks, Visa, Discover or MasterCard are accepted for Grounds Tour tickets.

Grounds Tour tickets and information are available by contacting Mary Geiss at the Hall of Fame Museum office at (317) 492-6747 or mgeiss@brickyard.com. Tickets also will be available for purchase at the Museum, but space is limited and tours often sell out.
