Posted at 11:53 AM, May 25, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Champagne has fizzled and the confetti has been cleaned up. IMS officials announced the blackout officially lifted on Wednesday morning. So how exactly do you watch the Indianapolis 500 this year?

Sunday, RTV6 has all the race coverage you could ask for. RTV6 is 6.1 for over-the-air viewers, 5 on Comcast, 7 on Bright House, and 6 on Dish Network and Direct TV.

The annual Breakfast at the Brickyard pre-race coverage will begin on RTV6 at 5 a.m., and last until 11 a.m.

At 11 a.m., ABC's network coverage will take over until the green flag drops, which is expected at 12:19 p.m.

IMS president Doug Boles invited everybody not able to make it to the race to watch together.

"Host a porch party, invite your neighbors, turn on the TV and watch the Indianapolis 500," Boles said. "Tweet at us photos of you guys enjoying the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500."

After the race, watch post-race specials on RTV6 until 7 p.m., then a replay of the full race, start to finish.

If you're too tired from the parties Sunday night, RTV6 will also show a rebroadcast of the Indianapolis 500 Monday at 10 a.m.
