Restart Your Competitive Engine
Indiana is known as the Racing Capital of the World for good reason. The Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 are held annually at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The history of Indiana’s automotive heritage is honored throughout the state with many racetracks and nearly 20 automotive museums including the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend and the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum in Auburn. When it’s not racing season, stand up and cheer for the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers or any of the five minor league baseball teams found in Indiana. A day at the ballpark or stadium is the perfect way to enjoy an Indiana afternoon.
