Do you need tickets for the Indy 500 parade?
The Indy 500 Breakfast at the Brickyard is an Indianapolis tradition that celebrates the success of the Indy 500. It takes place at the track the morning of Pole Day. Distinguished guests are mayors from around the state. The 33 500 Festival Princesses also attend the event. The Indianapolis 500 Queen is crowned at this event. In 2012, special guests are Indy 500 legends Parnelli Jones and Tom Sneva. For more Indy 500 events, visit…
It's tough to say because the Daytona 500 is the Nascar Super Bowl and more fans like Nascar than Indycar, but the Indy 500 racetrack has more seats than in Daytona. So I think more people go to the Indy 500 just because the track has more seats and the Indy 500 is the most important race in motor sports.
The first Indy 500 winner that drove in a Formula One race (other than the Indy 500 which was considered an F-1 race between 1950-1960) was Rodger Ward of the United States, the 1959 and 1962 Indy 500 winner, who drove in the 1959 United States Grand Prix. The first winner that drove full time in Formula One was Jim Clark of Scotland, the 1965 Indy 500 champion.
