IMS Hopes to Make Busy Schedule Busier

Posted: Updated:

Even with an increased number of racing events this year, the president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway says there is "room for more." Doug Boles says the venue has long-term plans for the Indianapolis Grand Prix and The Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational, which debuted this year. He says it will be a busy off-season that will include new video boards, adjustments to seating for better sight lines and safety improvements. Boles says Speedway leaders are exploring the possibility of one or two additional "marquee" events on the calendar.

He says there are "great things on the horizon" for the Indianapolis 500, which will celebrate the 99th running next season and is experiencing rebounding attendance numbers.

Boles says additional changes at the venue will continue to revolve around fan experience. He says leaders will spend the next few months mulling potential tweaks to parking procedures, restrooms, concession stands and how information is delivered to fans.
