Indy 500 to host 135,000 in largest sports event in pandemic

The Indianapolis 500 is set to be the largest sporting event in the world since the start of the pandemic with 135,000 spectators permitted to attend “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” next month. Indianapolis Motor Speedway said Wednesday it worked with the Marion County Public Health Department to determine that 40% of venue capacity can attend the May 30 race on Memorial Day weekend. The attendance figure was determined after Indianapolis hosted the NCAA men’s basketball tournament through March and into April with limited attendance.
