Add the Indianapolis 500 To Your Daily Virtual Routine

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is revving up race fans’ daily virtual routines through a set of online meeting backgrounds featuring Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge Race Day.

A set of six photos from the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge is available now for fans to save and upload into their preferred video conferencing platform, creating a background during meetings.

From the stunning pre-race festivities to the on-track action from green flag to checkered flag, Victory Circle celebration with 2019 winner Simon Pagenaud and the peaceful view of the famed IMS Pagoda in the evening, fans with these scenes from “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” will give a high-octane boost to virtual work meetings or a happy hour with friends.

Here’s How It Works

To use these backgrounds, users must first download the IMS photos they want to use and save them to their computer. Many video conferencing platforms give users the option to upload photos to set as their background. Once users have found the proper way to upload images, they can select the desired image as their background.
