Indianapolis Motor Speedway Selling Green Folding Chairs Used At Venue Since 1956
SPEEDWAY, Ind. -- Race fans can buy a piece of history from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
IMS is selling the famous "Green Chairs" that lined the B Stand and B Penthouse grandstands from the 1950s until 2015.
Each metal folding chair comes with a commemorative plaque and is sold in the same condition when it was last used. Fans can buy the chairs that were first installed in 1956 for $75 or the ones that were put in place in the 1960's for $50.
Limited quantities of the iconic green, metal folding chairs are on sale now at www.ims.com/green-chairs at two prices: $75 (installed in 1956) and $50 (installed in the 1960s).
The chairs were replaced by aluminum bench seats during the Project 100 renovation program of the facility.
Race Day ticket holders for any IMS event in 2018 will receive a $10 discount on either chair option if they purchase the chair using the same IMS account with which they bought Race Day tickets.
In addition, IMS President Doug Boles says more antique items, including old signage that used to hang at the venue, will soon be for sale.
"In May, we will make a lot of those old, really cool signs available for fans and we'll probably have a location at the track for people to pick different sizes or kinds of signs," says Boles.
