It may only be February, but the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 is certainly inching closer and closer. In fact, we are just about three months away from the waving of the green flag, believe it or not.

To kick off the countdown, join Verizon IndyCar Series drivers and Indianapolis Motor Speedway leadership on Thursday, February 18, for a free late-night party at the track. Beginning at 9:30 pm, all are welcome to gather at the speedway’s historic Yard of Bricks, counting down to midnight when it will officially be 100 days until Race Day. In keeping with the spirit of the Indy 500, food and beverage deals will be available, as fans prepare for this year’s momentous centennial race.
