Align Your Brand with the Racing Capital of the World

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the oldest continually operating racetrack in the United States and is known as the Racing Capital of the World. IMS is the world's largest sports seating facility and hosts the largest single-day sporting event in the world, the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. Since it's opening in 1909, the Speedway has been a worldwide leader in motorsports and has played host to many of the greatest champions, pioneers and innovators in auto racing, motorcycle and aviation competition history. The Indianapolis 500, "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," takes place annually at IMS and is synonymous with speed, tradition and innovation. The stars of the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series also compete every year at the historic venue during Brickyard Weekend, one of the biggest motorsports weekends in America on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile IMS road course. Living up to its reputation as a bucket list sporting venue, IMS hosts the world-class athletes of the prestigious NTT INDYCAR SERIES, NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and the Intercontinental GT Challenge, as well as global entertainment superstars that descend upon the multifaceted venue for concerts, pre-race ceremonial roles and much more.
