INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Vice President of the United States will be at the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 this Sunday.

With Mike Pence in attendance, authorities will likely amplify security measures.

It’s unclear at this time what the former governor’s role will be at the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” but if it’s anything like last year, he’ll be there to spend time with his family.

Pence confirmed he’s attending the race Thursday:

Pence posted photos with his wife and kids during the 100th running, which fell just weeks before he was named as Donald Trump’s running mate.

He also posted a “flashback Friday” photo, calling the 500 a “true Pence Family tradition.”
