Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Indianapolis Motor Speedway

 Track Length – 2.5 Mile

 Seats – 250,000

The one track that is famously not associated with NASCAR is the Indianapolis Motor speedway (IMS).  Known throughout the world for the Indy 500 (open wheel racing) that is run here, NASCAR started racing at Indy in 1994.  Also know as the “Brickyard” due to the track being laid with bricks at one time, IMS was built in 1909. The only NASCAR race at Indy each year is appropriately named the “Brickyard 400″.  Due to the size of Indy, it’s actually the biggest attendance race of the year for NASCAR with over 250,000 seats.

With 2 long sections of track associated with relatively flat corners, Indy can be a very difficult track for both drivers and their crew chiefs.  To win at Indy the cars must have both the motors and the handling setup just right to be in a position to win this one.
