Passes for parking inside the third turn for the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 NASCAR race went on sale Monday. Front-row parking spaces cost $75 while additional general parking spaces will sell for $25.
We need to provide some perspective. If Brickyard 400 attendance was, as estimated, somewhere between 130,000 and
150,000, that still makes it the second-largest single-day sporting event in the world and represents a healthy influx of
cash, much of it coming from elsewhere, spent in the area over the weekend.
Three days after witnessing the smallest Brickyard 400 crowd in the race's 17-year history, Indianapolis Motor Speedway
CEO Jeff Belskus said he intends to cut ticket prices for about 75 percent of fans at next year's race.
