"Lights At The Brickyard" Returns For Third Year At IMS
SPEEDWAY, Ind. – The Lights at the Brickyard is quickly becoming a holiday tradition in Indy.
This is the third year that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is hosting the nightly event which starts Friday, Nov. 17 and runs every evening through Dec. 30.
"We've got over 500 displays [and you] actually get to drive on the road course in addition to going across the yard of bricks, which was the most popular point for folks," says IMS President Doug Boles.
The two-mile course travels through the IMS infield and along the front stretch of the historic oval and over the three-foot section of bricks at the start-finish line of the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400.
More than three million lights will light up the track along the way.
Hours are 6 to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. It will also be open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
