Each year, Legends Day presented by Firestone combines two things race fans love most: History and racing. This year, thanks to #500atHome, that’s no different. All day long on Saturday, May 23, relive historic Indy 500 moments on IMS.com and on IMS social media. Plus, add the 500 Festival to your day and be on the lookout for exciting ways to engage with your favorite NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers.
