The Greatest Spectacle in Racing is just weeks away. Doug Boles, President of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, joined Tony Katz Friday morning to talk about what to expect for this year’s race, what COVID restrictions have changed, and if/when you can go the track.
Besides the exciting new changes to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (think new urinals) Boles says he’s more excited to see fans walking around again. A year after the pandemic, Boles, fans, and of course the drivers are ready for this weekend to kick-off the racing season!
Practices began Friday morning at the IMS with qualifications for the GMR Grand Prix. Even though the Indy 500 has sold-out of their limited tickets, Boles tells Katz there are still tickets available for Saturday’s Grand Prix.

Fans will also be welcomed to come and watch practices anytime the track is open now through race day. Engines will start to roar for the Indy 500 first practice on Opening Day, Tuesday, May 18th.
