FULL INDIANAPOLIS 500 DETAILS
On April 21, the Speedway announced its plan to hold attendance to the 105th Running at approximately 40 percent of venue capacity — or 135,000. Ticket holders are asked to log into their accounts to note their intentions to attend. IMS is doing its best to accommodate everyone’s request and limit the number of people who must be moved to meet the Marion County Public Health Department’s requirements regarding physical spacing on Race Day. Most of the grandstand seating will have two empty seats between customer groups, although there likely will be only one seat between groups in the most popular sections.
