The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has announced The Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line will move to Fourth of July weekend starting in 2020. The Speedway says it will also work to add other special events to the weekend schedule for the holiday weekend.
The 27th annual NASCAR event weekend at IMS will take place July 3-5, on the 2.5-mile oval. The Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race will be on July 5.
“There’s no better venue to throw a massive party for our nation’s birthday than the Racing Capital of the World,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said in a news release. “Fourth of July weekend is a celebration of patriotism and getting outside in the summer with family and friends, and a Big Machine concert and NASCAR racing at the Speedway combine those two traditions, making for a special Independence Weekend celebration!”
Along with FGL Fest, the Driven2SaveLives BC39 powered by NOS Energy Drink United States Auto Club National Midget Championship event also will move to the new NASCAR event week in July.
