Common Indy 500 race questions

What are the best seats to see the Indy 500 race from?

Most race fans prefer to sit up enough rows to see the entire track. Seats near the paddock give a great view of the pits and the Paddock Penthouse seats can give you one of the best views of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a few extra amenities. The straightaway is always popular but seats near the turns are also in high demand.

What happens if it rains? Do I get a refund?

There are no refunds or exchanges unless the race rains out entirely and the race is not rescheduled. If there is a rain delay you will be notified and the race will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

What time do the gates open and what time does the Indy 500 race start?

The public gates open at 5:33 am, followed by the Parade of Bands at 8:30 am and the 500 Festival Princesses Lap at 9:55. The drivers assemble at pit lane at 9:55 am and the race gets underway at 11 am.

Indy 500 Faqs

  • The first Indy 500 was in 1911. It has been called The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
  • The distance of the race was decided by the approximate time of 7 hours that they wanted the race to run. The first race was won with a time of 6 hours and 42 minutes. In 2011 the Indy 500 was won in 2 hours and 56 minutes.
  • The track is 2.5 miles long with 4 turns
  • The Indy 500 is limited to 33 drivers to help maintain a safe distance between the cars. At least that was the thought at the time.
