INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The 2015 Crown Royal Presents the "Your Hero's Name Here" 400 at the Brickyard, the marquee event of the annual Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard, will take place on Sunday, July 26, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The Crown Royal Presents the "Your Hero's Name Here" 400 at the Brickyard is the 20th of 36 points races on the 2015 Sprint Cup Series schedule, released Tuesday by NASCAR.
Pittsboro, Indiana's Jeff Gordon made history in July by winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at IMS for the fifth time - more than any other driver. Gordon now stands with Michael Schumacher - a five-time winner of the Formula One United States Grand Prix - as the only drivers to win five major races at IMS.
Gordon will defend his title next July against competition expected to include four-time Brickyard 400 winner Jimmie Johnson and fan favorites Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Danica Patrick.
In addition to the 22nd annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, IMS will host the fourth annual Lilly Diabetes 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday, July 25.
