Today is Community Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Erik wrote about all the events going on as part of the 2010 Indianapolis 500, and today’s event is one that everyone looks forward to.
One of the coolest things about Community Day is that you can actually drive your car on the track! Be sure to enter the track at Gate #10 on 30th street to get the opportunity to drive on the track. You’ll also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the drivers in this year’s Indy 500.
