Lights at the Brickyard presented by Fifth Third Bank is also the place for kids to be this winter! Several kid-friendly activities, including a train ride around an oval track and a little drummer boy ride, will be open every night. The IMS mascot, IndyCar transporters and vehicles representing the 2020 racing calendar at IMS will be available for fans of all ages to see and take photos with on select nights.

This stunning view is sure to take your breath away!

Speedy Pass holders of all ages can also meet Santa Claus and take photos trackside at the base of the Pagoda. Santa will be decked out in a custom racing suit as he gears up for the 2020 racing season.

With each Speedy Lane pass purchased, up to four adults and children 15 and under when accompanied by an adult with a Speedy Lane pass, can access the Pagoda Experience.
