  • What is the minimum age for participants?
  • We prefer all volunteers to be 18. However, volunteers can be 16 or 17 with a notarized waiver. All groups must also maintain an adult chaperon:minor ratio of 1:3.
  • What if our group has a change in our participation numbers?
  • Please notify us immediately with any changes to your participation numbers. This will allow our office to re-allocate our staff in order to account for any shortages or increases. If you bring less than your commitment, your donation will be decreased to reflect your actual attendance.e
  • How long are the event days?
  • While this number is subject to change for each day and event, group members should plan to volunteer no less than 8-12 hours, 13 hours on Indy 500 Race Day, depending on the area they are assigned.
  • What if our group members can only volunteer a portion of the assigned day?
  • Group members should only sign up to volunteer if they are available for the entire shift. This helps with consistency and prevents areas from becoming short staffed throughout the day.
  • When can our group expect to receive the donation?
  • All groups are required to check-in and check-out for their shift. You can expect to receive the donation check in the mail 3-4 weeks after the event.
All groups must be prepared to complete the following:
  • Submit an interest form/application and receive email confirmation from IMS on participation
  • Submit a W9/Tax ID # and Group Agreement to IMS
  • All group members complete waiver prior to arriving on-site
  • Receive official schedule/welcome packet from IMS
  • Check in weekly with IMS rep on status of group
