INDIANAPOLIS — It’s race day over at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

Tens of thousands of fans are getting ready for an experience of a lifetime, with the GMR Grand Prix officially kicking off on Saturday afternoon.

That’s what a lot of today is about for families. They’re coming out, introducing their kids for the first time in-person to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the cars that run the Indy 500.”
