About Indianapolis Motor Speedway
For racing fans, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, or IMS, needs to introduction as it is pretty much as close to ground-zero for racing at you can get. The history behind the track is equally as impressive as the size of the track. IMS held its debut race on August 19, 1909 in front of almost 20,000 standing spectators who showed up to watch about a dozen drivers. Later, in preparation for the first running of the Indianapolis 500 in 1911, the entire track was paved with 3.2 million bricks. Since then, the track has seen many changes and now only a single strip of bricks remain, and now has permanent seating for 250,000 fans. Although the majority of the bricks have been replaced, the name remains and the track will always be known as the Brickyard.
