Roger Penske ready for 300k guests in a full-capacity Indy 500



Indianapolis, Indiana — Since buying the property in 2020, Roger Penske will, at last, be able to open the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to a capacity crowd for his first true Indianapolis 500 this Sunday.

Last year, the pandemic forced his first 500 to be held without spectators and only 40% capacity.

He’s spent more than $30 million in capital improvements to prepare the iconic speedway for Penske’s first true housewarming party.

On Sunday, Penske expects more than 300,000 people on the property and has been relentless in ensuring the speedway is in pristine condition for his guests.
