Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hotel

Our Indianapolis Motor Speedway hotel is located just minutes from this spectacular racetrack. With capacity for approximately 400,000 spectators, it is the largest sporting facility in the world and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. To many, the Speedway is known simply as "The Brickyard", harking back to a day when over 3.2 million bricks circled the track. Today there is still one three-foot wide section of exposed brick - at the start/finish line where the greatest drivers in the world cross during the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP.
