Jul 26, 2013 - Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum

They say a trip to Indianapolis is never complete without visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum – simply because it is considered to be one of the most famous car raceways and every year, in the month of May, they welcome more than 400,000 crowd of Indy 500 fans to its race circuit. Even if you are not a big fan of racing, NASCAR or Indy Car Racing, planning a trip here in an Indianapolis chartered bus is always an exciting outing that you would have ever planned for yourself and your family!

Once you arrive at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum in the chartered bus, you may begin to feel a certain feeling of excitement, knowing that you now stand on the grounds of the world’s most famous car raceways that dates back to 1909 and is also said to be the oldest running motor race course that is still in operation. They are open daily throughout the whole year – from 9am to 5pm (March till October) and from 10am to 4pm (November till February), with extended hours in the month of May. However, they are closed on Thanksgiving Day as well as on Christmas.

Visitors to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum will have a couple of tour options to choose from on the race tracks – a tour round the track in a bus (it will be their own bus though, not the Indianapolis chartered bus that you came in!) or a tour on the racetrack in a bus with a behind-the-scene tour of the facility. We reckon that the latter option would be much better as you get to get off the bus at the finish line to take photos, tour the press area and you also get to sit on the very same chairs that the racers would sit on to be interviewed after each race and the best thing out of this is that you get to stand at the winner’s circle – now, wouldn’t that be just a great spot to have your photo taken? When you are done with the race tracks, you can then move on to the Hall of Fame Museum to check out the collection of Indi cars, which are displayed by year to enable visitors to see the progression of the designs of the cars over the years. Before you hop back on the chartered bus that you came in, don’t forget to drop by their gift shop to get something special to bring home with you as souvenirs.
