Best Seat in the House

Indianapolis Motor Speedway for NASCAR, Indy Car, and Formula 1


City: Indianapolis, Indiana

Opened: 1909

Capacity: 257,325-400,000

This asphalt and brick course goes back over 100 years and has a museum that is filled with cars and other racing paraphernalia that date back to its inception. Take your pick race fans, Andretti or Earnhardt? 


Reason to Go:

To visit, by far, the biggest stadium in the world. Depending on your racing tastes, go for the Indy 500 or the Brickyard 400…and make sure to bring your earplugs. If you can’t get into the Pagoda VIP tower suites, try out the moderately priced seats and you should probably bring in your own drinks to cut down on costs over the long day of racing. I recommend rum and coke mixed inside a few plastic coke bottles.
