Indianapolis Motor Speedway releases new and improved Race Day app

INDIANAPOLIS, Tuesday, April 26 – With the historic 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil just around the corner, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has released a new and improved IMS Mobile App.

This free app will be a must-have for all important information and events happening at IMS. To find it on the Apple or Android App Store, search “IMS Mobile” and select the “Brickyard Mobile” app. Once downloaded, everything you need from buying tickets to parking to daily schedules will be in the palm of your hand. This handy tool will even send you up-to-the-minute notifications whenever something major happens.

“The new IMS app will be another tool to help IMS visitors take full advantage of their experience as they come back for an epic Month of May,” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles. “As we welcome our largest crowd in years for the 100th Indianapolis 500, the app will provide assistance navigating IMS and staying up-to-date with the schedule and other activities, including the festivities planned for this year’s Race Day.”

New features on the app include:

  • Point-to-Point navigation, which provides the fastest routes to the facility from all directions around IMS. Whether you are coming from out of state or from anywhere in Indiana, this app will give you directions on how to best arrive at the racetrack. Fans are encouraged to download directions before they begin their journey to IMS to take advantage of faster internet speeds in lower-populated areas
  • Interactive track maps, allowing fans access to the quickest routes throughout the facility. For example, if you are a spectator looking for the quickest way to get from your parking lot to Gate 1, this app will tell you exactly how to get there.
  • Updated photo galleries, news and results sections, delivering more information and statistics.
  • Refreshed design and an easier user experience with quick access to features you want at home or during your visit at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Again, the app is available now through the Apple and Android App Stores. The 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil is May 29.
