INDIANAPOLIS -- Thousands of fans won't be the only ones at the Indianapolis 500 this year.

ESPN recently announced that it will air four episodes of "SportsCenter," the network's flagship program, from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

It will be the show's first live appearance from the Indy 500 in more than a decade.

"I can't think of a better place to be than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as we approach Race Day for the 100th Running of the Indy 500," said J. Douglas Boles, IMS President. "Our fans are going to love hosting the SportsCenter team on site and today's good news will truly make the Month of May even more exciting and unforgettable for everyone."  

Two of the programs will be on Saturday, May 28, beginning at 9 a.m., and beginning at 6 p.m.

The other two one-hour programs will be on the morning of the race, May 29. One will be from 8-9, and the other from 10-11.
