The Indy 500 has been pushed from its traditional May date due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 104th Indy 500 will be held on August 23, halfway through the traditionally biggest sporting events of the year. “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” can accommodate around 250,000 fans on the spacious speedway and leave plenty of space when the total number is limited to half.

“We are determined to race the Indy 500 on Sunday, August 23rd, and we will greet the fans at the world’s largest race track,” said IMS President J. Douglas Boles. “We will limit attendance to around 50 percent and complete a number of other carefully considered health and safety measures.”
