INDIANAPOLIS — For the second year in a row, Indianapolis 500 officials are lifting the local TV blackout of the race.

The decision comes after no more tickets are available and the 40% venue capacity limit has been reached, according to a statement from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Officials lifted the blackout in 2020 because of the capacity restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
