The track has four distinct turns of identical dimensions, connected by four straightaways and two "short chutes". Drivers race 200 laps, counter clockwise around the circuit for 500 miles. Since it began in 1911, the race always falls around Memorial Day weekend. The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend is widely viewed as one of the most important days on the motorsports calendar. On that Sunday you see the running of the Indianapolis 500, Cock-Cola 600, and the Monaco Grand Prix. Practice and time trials are held two weeks leading up to the race, while other preliminary testing begins as early as April.
Traditionally, the field of drivers consists of 33 starters, aligned in a grid of eleven rows, three cars a piece. The race is the most prestigious on the IndyCar calendar, as well as one of the oldest. The Indianapolis 500 is considered the largest single-day sporting event in the world. The total purse of the event exceeded $13 million in 2011, with over $2.5 million going to the winner, making it one of the richest cash prizes in sports.
About Indianapolis Motorspeedway
Indianapolis Motorspeedway was built in 1909 as a gravel and tar track, hosting various small events, including motorcycle races. The first long distance event was the 100 lap Prest-O-Lite Trophy in 1909. The track surface began to to crack shortly after, causing two fatal accident in the first two long distance events. Each of those spectacles attracted over 15,000 paying customers and crowds of over 40,000. Due to the growing popularity, principal owner Carl G. Fisher spent $155,000 to repave the track with over 3.2 million bricks, and also added a nearly three foot concrete wall around the track.
The first Indianapolis 500 was held at Indianapolis Motorspeed way on Decoration Day(or Memorial Day, as it's known now) on May 30th, 1911. The race saw a field of 40 starters, with Ray Hauron winning, although Ralph Mulford protested the official result. Over 80,000 spectators were in attendance, and the annual spectacle was born.
The race was originally promoted as the "International 500 Mile Sweepstakes Race" from 1911 to 1916. However, since it began, the race has been widely known as the Indianapolis 500, or simple "the 500". When the 1981 race came along, it was called the "65th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race" with all reference to the "International Sweepstakes dropped". Since then, the race has been advertised as soon, complete with a unique annual logo.
