Our Indianapolis Motor Speedway hotel is located just minutes from the "The Brickyard," the largest sporting facility in the world. With a capacity for approximately 400,000 spectators, the track welcomes world-class fans to the famed banked oval track for three of the highest profile races each year; including the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. For race aficionados, we highly recommend the facility tour which begins at the visitor center and includes a visit to the remaining three-foot wide section of exposed brick - at the start/finish line.
