Ever wonder how cool it would be to take a lap around the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Then rev up your engines for the American Family Insurance 500 Festival Community Day and you can do just that! Experience this unique opportunity of taking a lap around the track in your own car before the real race cars hit the track just four days later—at speeds of more than 200 mph! Tours of Pit Lane and the official timing and scoring area in the Pagoda are available. Race fans can get autographs from their favorite Indianapolis 500 drivers. Don’t miss the Media Pit Stop Competition at noon, with members of the media contending for $5,000 to donate to charity, compliments of American Family Insurance. Also, admission to Community Day includes admission to the Indianapolis MotorSpeedway Hall of Fame Museum. Visitors who wish to cruise the 2.5-mile track need to enter Gate 10 off 30th Street in their vehicle.
