It’s the most wonderful time of the year here in Indiana as the Indianapolis 500 approaches! Every year, nearly 250,000 fans pack the stands to watch the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing”. With an RV or camper rental from ABC Auto Van & RV Rental in Fort Wayne, you can experience all of the fun and excitement of the Indy 500 without ever leaving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Camping at the Track
There are plenty of opportunities to camp at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Camping surfaces vary by lot, so you can decide whether you want to camp on pavement, grass, gravel, or dirt. Camping spaces are located all around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, allowing you to camp in a location close to your seat.
While the race itself only lasts a few hours, the fun goes on for days! Miller Lite Carb Day takes place on Friday, May 24, and features final practice runs for the race, the Indy 500 Pit Stop Challenge, and the Miller Lite Carb Day Concert headlined by Foreigner! Saturday is Legends Day: current and past drivers are available for autographs in the morning, and the Zac Brown Band is headlining the Firestone Legends Day Concert in the afternoon! And, to keep the fun rolling, the Snake Pit, the ultimate party in motorsports, begins at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 26 to kick off race day!
There are few events as exciting as the Indy 500. Every year, the song “Back Home Again in Indiana” is performed as thousands of red, white, and blue balloons are released into the air. After the firing of the engines, the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” begins as 33 drivers fly around the track at top speeds. The winner of the race is awarded a cold bottle of milk and the famous Borg-Warner Trophy.
