Vintage cars to race at IMS June 6-8
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is introducing another race to the 2014 schedule.
More than 500 historic racecars will compete on the Speedway's reconfigured road course and run exhibition events on the 2.5-mile oval as part of the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association's Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational June 6-8.
A wide variety of cars, including those that have competed in past Indianapolis 500s and cars from the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series and Formula One, will compete in the races.
Racing will run virtually non-stop from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day and fans will have access to an up close look of the cars on the infield during the event.
"Indianapolis Motor Speedway fans appreciate and enjoy the history of racing and welcoming this event to IMS is the perfect way to celebrate racing history with cars that have competed in all different classes and many different venues over the last 100 years," said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president. "SVRA events are incredibly fan friendly, offering everyone the rare opportunity to get close to the historic racecars, talk to the owners and drivers, and trade stories about racing's heritage. When you combine the story of each of the cars competing to the over 100 years of history and stories of competition at IMS, this will be an unforgettable weekend of racing."
A complete schedule will be released at a later date. Tickets start at $15 on Friday, June 6 and a three-day pass is $40. Current IMS ticketholders can save $10 on three-day general admission passes until May 1.
