It won’t be long before you hear Hoosiers declaring, “This is May.”

The 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 is expected to sell out this year. Sales are on track with the most recent sold out Indy 500 eight years ago, a testament to casual fans becoming yearly attendees.

IMS President Doug Boles believes that people have been more likely to purchase their tickets early after the sellout in 2016. Fans are eager to watch 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson’s debut at the Indy 500.

This year, race attendees can expect to see renovations such as new video monitors, new paint coats, and paved walkways, thanks to the investments of track owner Roger Penske.

Additionally, Hoosiers and tourists will see “Welcome Race Fans” original artwork from five local artists. The artwork will be installed around the city and will be unveiled on Thursday, May 2 at the Indianapolis Artsgarden.
