Indianapolis Motor Speedway Releases Digital Archive Online

From the IMS:

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has opened its deep, 111-year archive for race fans around the world to access, enjoy and use as a tool to learn about the extensive heritage of the Racing Capital of the World.

The IMS Digital Archive takes fans on a journey through the racetrack’s fabled history by highlighting some of its biggest moments in a chronological timeline.


Each Tuesday for the next 13 weeks, IMS will release a new decade in chronological order. Fans are encouraged to check weekly as more content will be unlocked and great stories will be told.
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has hosted some of the greatest champions, pioneers and innovators in auto racing, motorcycle racing and aviation competition history,”

From the track’s original dimensions as a 5-mile road course-oval hybrid to stories about the Speedway’s most prominent and successful figures, additional written and visual content will provide race fans with detailed and entertaining information about the Brickyard and the iconic people that have walked its hollowed grounds.
