It’s less than 100 days from the drop of the green flag at the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway president Doug Boles said at this point they are planning to open the gates to everyone who wants to buy a ticket for this year’s race with no capacity restrictions like the previous two years.
“We’re full throttle for full capacity for May 29th for the 106th running,” Boles said. “At this point, we don’t even have a contingency plan in place team in place to start thinking about something different. 100-percent capacity with 300,000-plus people, we feel pretty good about that.”
Last year’s attendance was limited to 135,000 people and the year before when the race was run in August there were no fans allowed at all because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bronze badges are also on sale without any vaccination status requirements.
