INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The month of May is electric every year in Indianapolis, but for some people, it just means more.

Indy's most hardcore race fans show off their passion within the confines of their home — literally.

Some of these fans took us inside to see their homes decked out in checkered flags, iconic posters and signed memorabilia.

Everyone in the Stenger family is a huge fan of the Indy 500. Daughter Kennedy said her parents have put so much "time and heart" into the basement of their south side home, which is a certified shrine of the Indy 500


Bob Booher lives near Indianapolis Motor Speedway and has been parking cars at his home for decades. Years ago, he noticed people's first question after parking was often "Can I use your bathroom?" That's how Booher decided to redecorate his bathroom, totally dedicated to the race. The room is now complete with race regalia.
