Memorial Day Weekend brings the internationally acclaimed Indy 500 to the Brickyard in Indianapolis - the most exhilarating race event in the motorsport calendar. This 200-lap race celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. The participants battle to win the $1 million Borg-Warner Trophy, along with a huge cash prize. Go along, witness the incredible speed, and eat one of the millions of hot dogs and bratwurst, which if laid end to end would circle the track more than three times!

This is something everyone must do before they die. The most famous track in the world with some of the best racing on four wheels.

Even if you’re not a race fan, the atmosphere will sweep you up! There is nothing to compare to the 300,000 strong crowds cheering the drivers on. Just be prepared for the heat and the long queues.

I have had the same seats since 1973! Since that time we have added 4 more seats for a total of 6. I’m not really a race fan, but this event is an important part of our year. It is a VERY patriotic event.
