While I think being a Hoosier is pretty great all year round, I have to say that May is my absolute favorite month. Not just for the beautiful spring weather, but mostly because the shrill sound of some of the fastest cars on earth making their way around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway can once again be heard. I’m by no means a gearhead, but even my heart beats a little faster when the engines roar to life.
So don’t let this wonderful month of activities pass you by. Plan ahead, and get some of these dates on your calendar now. Even if you’re not into racing, there’s still a lot to do to celebrate all things Indy 500!
More information, including times and ticket purchase for events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway can be found at the May Calendar of Events.
And if you can’t make it to the track, see if your favorite Indiana town is participating in the Back Home Again in Indiana contest. Communities all over Indiana are showing their Indy 500 pride and competing for grants to fund local projects.
