What should I wear???

Honestly, we just want you to be really comfortable so just about anything goes.  
If you want to wear jeans and t or sweat-shirts – we’re good!
If you want to get dressed up and act like fancy grown-ups – we’re good.  
If this weekend is all about business for you, wear a suit or business casual – we’re good.
If you want to do a bit of each depending on the event – we’re good with that too.  
Just be comfy and happy.  We’re all friends here, or will be soon!!!

What should I bring???

Photo Albums, memorabilia that is small enough to carry with you – anything you might want to share with others about your racing memories .
Cameras, smart phones, iPads – to capture and save the event for future memories.
A good set of listening ears to catch all the great stories that will be told.
A well-rested body and mind as the weekend is jam packed with fun things to do! 

How do I purchase tickets?

Preferred payment option: Order online with a credit card or thru PayPal. Another option…..snail mail. See the Registration Page to order your tickets.

And… there will be some vendors at the hotel and Main St. Speedway is a unique place to eat and shop! 

What’s the weather like in Indy???

You might want to consider bringing layers of clothes, maybe even an umbrella – Indy could be delightful in October or a bit cool. Please note:  the Indy BRW Pit Crew has no control over weather events
