  Cinco de Mayo am Main starts on the Speedway in front of Indianapolis 500 in May - WISH-TV |  Indianapolis News |  Indiana weather

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) – City Speedway closed Main Street Wednesday afternoon and evening to kick off the month of May with a special event ahead of the Indianapolis 500.

Mission Foods presented Cinco de Mayo am Main. The event was led by Arrow McLaren SP, whose driver Pato O’Ward is the only full-time Latino IndyCar driver.

The event gave hundreds of families the chance to come out and see their neighbors, show their kids a racing car up close, and snap a picture.

Some live entertainment events and restaurants also distributed their seating on the sidewalks.
