The event lends its name to the “IndyCar” class of formula, or open-wheel, race cars that have competed in it. It has been broadcast live over radio on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network since 1952, televised live in 1949 and 1950 on then-independent, local station WFBM-TV (now WRTV), and not again until ABC Sports was permitted to broadcast the race via tape delay beginning in 1965, and eventually live flag-to-flag coverage beginning in 1986.

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” covers 500 miles, 200 laps on the famous 2.5-mile oval. It currently is the marquee race on the schedule for the IZOD IndyCar Series, the premier open-wheel racing series in North America.

Indianapolis 500 Event History

The Indy 500 goes back to 1911, when the first official race was held. Although the event has gone by different names, this is without question the premier event in the IRL tickets market, as the champion of every race becomes an instant legend. Legends such as A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti and Rick Mears have taken the checkered flag here in the past, and every race is a week-long celebration of open-wheel racing.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was founded by Carl Fisher in 1906, and the first Indianapolis 500 Mile Race was held in 1911. Following several lean years, and the suspension of racing during World War II, the track was sold to Anton Hulman Jr. in 1945. Hulman spent millions of dollars improving the facility and turned the Indianapolis 500 into the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” Despite rain delays, deaths, and a power struggle in auto racing circles, there has been an Indianapolis 500 each year since 1946.
