In Indianapolis the famed 500 mile race each May is a tradition for people all over the country. The Indy 500 is one of those events that has transcended generations, turmoil and controversy to remain one of the biggest events each summer. Many fans who go to the Indy 500 won’t watch another IRL race all year, but they pay attention to the 500, they get excited when their favorite driver wins the pole, or their team pit stop challenge. One of the greatest things about the 500 is all of the traditions that happen each year. The parade, carb day, pole day, bump day, the fly over the singing of God Bless American and Along the Banks of the Wabash and the sheer mystique of the IMS and its campus makes this event unlike anything else in sports. This year is going to be another spectacular race don’t miss out on your chance to be apart of history.
Since the beginning of “cinematic adventures,” filmmakers have been breaking the one cardinal rule of movies: sequels. Unless the film is part of a series, there should never be a 2, II, too, also, again, or any combination of words that imply that this movie is trying to come back for a second round at the end of a film title. Why the strong distaste for sequels? Let’s take a peek at a short list of prime examples:
-Look Who’s Talking, Too and Look Who’s Talking Now
-Beverly Hills Cop II & II (and I for that matter)
-Speed 2: Cruise Control
-The Ling II, The Little Mermaid II, Cinderella 2, and any other sequels to the classic Disney cartoon movies
-Save the Last Dance 2
-Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home
-My Girl 2 (….the icing on the cake!)
If any of you enjoyed one or more of the movies listed, then I am open to hearing your opinions. But my consensus remains that nothing beats the original.
Which brings me to my main point: Colts Play Superbowl in Miami II was bound to disappoint. The casting was similar, but missing a few key stars. The wardrobe was mixed up a bit buy switching from white jerseys to blue. The villain was a fresh opponent. The set was changed from rainy Sunday to warm evening. And of course the ending had to change in order to keep audiences in suspense. Colts fans give this Miami re-do two giant foam thumbs down.
Now that Indianapolis has had nearly two weeks to get over their disgust, it is time to check the showtimes for this upcoming week of some fresh originals or additions to a favorite series available through Circle City Tickets.

On the east side of Indianapolis is a small town called Speedway. This timeless treasure of a town is home to one of the world’s greatest landmarks, an icon of motor sport, the home to the greatest spectacle in racing. I’m talking, of course, about the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
This racing facility has a remarkable history, which begins 100 years ago. It was the first track to use the word ‘Speedway’ and was host to a 7-race motorcycle event on August 14, 1909. The first weekend for automobile races there was August 19-21 of the same year. Sixteen races, enacted by the American Automobile Association, led to 5 fatalities and a final race unfinished. Most of this was due to a terrible road surface. Thanks to track investor Carl Fisher, the speedway was overhauled completely, using 3.2 million paving bricks. This is why IMS is called The Brickyard. Since then, it has been paved over with high-grade asphalt, but a yard of bricks remain at the starting line.
In 1910, the Speedway reopened with 66 automobile races during Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekends. Each race, either 100 or 200-mile distance, had its own winner with its own trophy. This seemed a bit overextended and chaotic, so in 1911, the focus was switched to one race per year. The first 500 mile race was held on Memorial Day, May 30, 1911 to 80,000 spectators paying $1 each for admission. Ray Harrou, who averaged nearly 75 miles per hour, won the inaugural race, now referred to as the Indianapolis 500.
The 1910s through the 1920s were an interesting time for the race and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For instance, the 1916 race was shortened to 300 miles as a solemn reminder of World War I. In September of that year, the IMS hosted the Harvest Classic, a three race event of 20, 50, and 100-mile distances. One racer won all three races. As the US was now involved in the great war, racing was halted in 1917-1918 and the track became a center for military vehicle repairs. As racing returned, the speed of the vehicles had dramatically increased. The 1925 race, for instance, had an average track speed of 100 miles per hour.
The 30s and 40s were a hectic, nearly tragic time for the Speedway. During the Great Depression, the winnings for the race dropped dramatically. In addition, the rules were changed to encourage a wider range of automobile manufacturers to participate. But as increased cars were racing at increased speeds, the Brickyard became a treacherous track. So, another paving commenced, replacing the bricks in parts of the track with tarmac. This was mostly in response to 15 deaths in 4 years. In 1941, half of the garage area burned before the race. And, since the US was involved in World War II, the 1942 race was canceled. Later that year, the US government banned auto racing to conserve fuel, leaving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway an abandoned wreck. In 1946, in lieu of becoming a housing development, the track was sold to Tony Hulman, who kept it open as a public racing venue. Hastily, the track was repaired in time for the race that year.
The Speedway has continued to grow to this day. It is now home to the Red Bull Indianapolis GP Motorcycle race being held August 30. Get your MotoGP tickets today before they sell out.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and its famous yard of bricks is the home to the self-billed “Greatest Spectacle in Racing”: the Indianapolis 500 mile race. The speedway is home to other major racing events including the a 400 mile NASCAR race known as the ‘Brickyard 400‘, the Indianapolis GP (motorcycle racing) and, in prior years, has been the site of the US Grand Prix (F1 racing) and occupies a unique position in United States racing history.
The venue first came to life in 1909 as a gravel track kept in place with tar. The first major race event occurred in August of that year, a series of motorcycle races followed shortly by an automobile race sanctioned by the American Automobile Association. Due to poor track conditions the surface was replaced in 1910 with over 3 million bricks and the first 500-mile race took place in 1911. The annual Memorial Day weekend race has been held every year since 1911 with the exception of two years during World War I and four years during World War II.
Perhaps the greatest turning point in the Indianapolis Motor Speedways history took place at the end of 1944. Largely abandoned during the war, IMS fell into a state of general disrepair. A former Indianapolis 500 winner, on site to test tires for Firestone on behalf of the US Government, found the conditions deplorable and working with other fans of the race found a new owner in Indiana businessman Tony Hulman. Under Hulman’s ownership the facility was restored to its former glory, the 500-mile race resumed in 1946, and the modern era of the track started.
Tony Hulman’s grandson, Tony George, continued in the footsteps of Hulman when he became president of the facility in 1989 and introduced the NASCAR race, FI race, and motorcycle events to the track. Widely questioned for altering what had become the home to just one race a year, the Indianapolis 500, George’s decisions have proven to be good to the facility and under George’s oversight the facilities have continued to expand and evolve.
Not just a venue for racing, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is also home to a world-class 18-hole golf course and the Speedway Hall of Fame Museum making it a tourist destination for race fans and others alike. The golf course has been home to many tournaments and the museum is a pantheon of racing legend and history. Visitors to the museum can also, at certain times of the year, take a trip around the famous 2.5 mile track via tour bus and walk the grounds.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has a direct impact on the town in which it is located: Speedway, Indiana. Incorporated in 1926, Speedway is an enclave, or separate town, within Indianapolis and sees its population of less than 15,000 expand to more than 300,000 persons on race day events. Speedway was conceived as a city of the future and was intentionally designed for automobiles during its planning stages. As the Mecca of open-wheel racing, Speedway is proud to be associated with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and serves as a wonderful guest to race fans throughout the year.
