AAA Editor Notes
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is at 4790 W. 16th St. The proving grounds and racetrack for automobiles was built in 1909. The facility's Indianapolis 500 race has resulted in such automotive improvements as the rearview mirror, balloon tires and ethyl gasoline. The speedway, also the site of NASCAR's Brickyard 400 and MotoGP's Red Bull Indianapolis GP, covers more than 600 acres, with an 18-hole PGA course inside and around the track.

Also inside the 2.5-mile oval is the Hall of Fame Museum, which displays winning race cars, car and driver memorabilia, antique automobiles and equipment. Bus tours of the track are offered when it is not in use (weather permitting). Ninety-minute Grounds Tours take place March to mid-December. A film about the track's history and highlights is shown every half-hour in the Tony Hulman Theatre.
