The Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the 20th race on the
2013 Sprint Cup Series schedule.
Opening in 1909, Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a 2.5-mile "rectangular" oval,
and it is the largest and highest-capacity sporting facility in history. The
track has 9 degrees of banking in all of its turns and no banking on the
straightaways. The lengths of the turns are 1/4-mile in length, while the
straightaways are 5/8-mile long.
IMS was once paved with 3.2 million bricks, earning the nickname "The
Brickyard." A 36-inch "Yard of Bricks" remains at the start/finish line. They
are the only visible bricks left at this historic racetrack.
The Indianapolis 500 traditionally has run on Memorial Day weekend since 1911,
except war years (1917-18 and 1942-45). It is the oldest automobile race in
the United States. Tony Kanaan won the 97th running of the Indy 500 two months

Nationwide event there. Shawna Robinson is the only other female driver who
attempted to compete in a Cup event at Indy. Robinson failed to qualify for
the Brickyard 400 in '01.
