The month of May is almost here which means… so is the Indy 500! Fans will be welcome to the event this year, but it will look different.

The Indy 500 is set to be the world’s largest sporting event since the start of the pandemic. IMS will allow up to 40% of venue capacity, or approximately 135,000 fans, for the race on May 30.

“Our fans mean everything to us, and we can’t wait to welcome them ‘Back Home Again’ for this year’s Indy 500,” Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles said.

Spectator viewing mounds will be closed to the general public and no Race Day General Admission tickets will be sold.

Masks will be required, even for vaccinated visitors, and social distancing will be enforced, according to IMS.

Fans who do not currently have Indy 500 tickets and are interested in attending the race can apply online at the IMS websiteIf additional tickets are available, these fans will have the first opportunity to buy tickets.

Tickets for all other on-track days remain available.

There will be no General Admission access to the infield during the Month of May and the Carb Day concert, the Legends Day concert, and the Snake Pit Concert have all been canceled.
