500 Fan Fuel Encourages Support for Local Restaurants

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Susan Decker Media are teaming up to support Central Indiana restaurants for the next two weeks leading up to the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge with a program called 500 Fan Fuel! This program will help support some of your favorite local restaurants as IMS and Susan Decker Media encourage you to include them as a part of your Indy 500 celebration.

In these uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, local restaurants are facing challenging times while trying to maintain normal operations, and some of our favorite places to eat, drink and visit with friends need our help now more than ever. The deals start Monday, Aug. 10 and run through Indy 500 Race Day, Sunday Aug. 23.

Fans are encouraged to race into participating restaurants to take advantage of fixed-price menus that offer pre-selected dishes. With more than 80 locations throughout Central Indiana offering appealing appetizers, marvelous main dishes and decadent desserts, finding that perfect dish to add to your Indy 500 celebration will be seamless!

The many areas of Central Indiana participating in this offer include restaurants in downtown Indianapolis, Eastside, Hamilton County, the International Marketplace, Midtown, Southside and Westside.

Several restaurants in the Speedway’s backyard are also participating and offering great deals, including 1911 Grill, Barbeque and Bourbon, Daredevil Brewing Co., Fundae’s Ice Cream & Sweets, Tacos and Tequila on Main and many more!

Thanks to 500 Fan Fuel, it has never been easier to stop at one of your favorite local restaurants and pick up a tasty meal for your family, friends or yourself as you settle in to watch the 104th edition of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” at 1 p.m. (ET) Aug. 23 live on NBC.
