Brickyard to be held without spectators

Indianapolis, IN—The Brickyard 400 will be ran this year without spectators.  The event, scheduled for July 5th, as well as INDYCAR’s GMR Grand Prix, is a part of a 4th of July racing weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

But while the State of Indiana plans to enter Stage 5 of its “Back on Track Indiana” plan on July 4, opening sporting events to fans with social distancing, Marion County – home to IMS – moved to Stage 3 ten days after the rest of the state, and IMS cannot be confident that it will be ready to move to Stage 5 by the holiday weekend. This approach follows national trends for larger communities, and IMS must follow those guidelines and the leadership and judgment of the city and state officials during this challenging time.

Customers with tickets to the impacted events will receive an email from the IMS ticket office with instructions for claiming tickets to our 2021 events, an account credit good for all future events at IMS, or a refund.
