IMS has worked closely with the Town of Speedway and public safety officials to designate a route and parking location for fans who wish to ride Lime or Bird scooters to the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

Fans that ride Lime or Bird scooters to the Town of Speedway must enter along 10th Street from the east. 10th Street is closed to public traffic, but race fans should still be aware of track escorts and emergency traffic that will use 10th street on Race Day. Scooters must be parked in a dedicated lot at the corner of 10th Street and Allison Way (in front of Allison Transmission). To ensure safety and reduce congestion, scooters are not allowed to park on IMS grounds or anywhere else in the Town of Speedway.

We would like to remind all riders to practice safe riding behaviors, including following the rules of the road and being alert for traffic and other hazards as they make their way to and from IMS. Any questions should be directed to Lime or Bird.
