2023 INDIANAPOLIS 500 EVENTS & PARTY GUIDE
MAY 26TH - 28TH, 2023 • INDIANAPOLIS, IN
The Indianapolis 500, formally known as the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, and commonly called the Indy 500, is a prestigious annual automobile race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana. The 2023 event will take place over Memorial Day weekend, usually the last weekend of May, and is part of the IndyCar Series, the top level of American open-wheel car racing. The track itself is nicknamed the “Brickyard”, as the racing surface was famously paved in brick in the fall of 1909. One yard of brick remains exposed at the start/finish line. The event, billed as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, is considered part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport along with the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix, with which it typically shares a date. Make sure to stay up to date on all the best day parties and after parties happening during the upcoming 2023 Indianapolis 500 weekend.
