Indianapolis 500: Where you can (and can't) park on race day

Posted at 1:26 PM, May 23, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS — The 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 is coming up this Sunday and there are lots of things to keep in mind if you’re planning to attend.

More than 300,000 people are expected to attend Sunday’s race, meaning parking will become a major issue — especially the closer it gets to race time.

Parking is available in dozens of lots around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and in driveways and yards at homes surrounding the track. If you’ve never been to IMS on race day, you’ll understand as soon as you get close to the track.
