IMS hopes 500 and other events will still happen in May

COVID-19 response from Indianapolis Motor Speedway:


Dear Race Fan,


As you may know, the CDC’s interim guidance suggests the postponement of events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks. Our priority is to do our part in protecting the public health while still conducting the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge as scheduled on Sunday, May 24.


This continues to be a dynamic situation that we are monitoring constantly in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials. We are planning for all contingencies and will be prepared to run the GMR Grand Prix and Indy 500 as the COVID-19 situation permits.


We appreciate your understanding and patience as everyone navigates these challenging times. We will continue to keep you updated on all developments regarding the Month of May schedule.


As always, thank you for your support of IMS and we will stay in touch.



The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Team
