    Last year they raced go-karts at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time ever. Close to 300 karts showed up to race. The IMS kart track is a hybrid of the interior road course used by Indycar, Formula 1, and Motor GP and service roads. The event was such a success that it is being repeated this year with possible even more karts showing up.

    Entry fee is $425 if you own a kart and that includes $210 worth of new tires for the race.

    Thinking about entering this race if I have the funds. More bucket list stuff.

    Raced at Indy - check

    I live about an hour from the speedway. Let me know if you are definitely racing and I'll do my very best to come cheer you on.

    For a couple years in the 90's , I used to live in Speedway, IN a couple miles from where IMS is located. Beautiful facility. Daytona International Speedway (I live a few miles away, lol) has been hosting annual go kart races for a long time. Probably similar to what Indy is doing. if you ever make it down let me know. I have an in-law that participates in it so I could help you with the ins and outs. I believe it's usually held in December.
