  • Indy500 Entry Invites

    Does anyone know if the invitation to teams to participate in the Indy 500 have been sent out yet? Usually that news get released but I haven't heard anything this year. Usually, entries are due on or around April 1.

    Different men, from vastly different backgrounds, focused on the same goal – a white line painted on a yard of brick 500 miles ahead.

      The entry process has become a lot less formal now that everything can be done via email.

        Yes, it used to be that entires had to be hand delivered by owners, with the entry fee. That was fairly easy for teams based in Indianapolis, but teams based outside of Indiana (Penske was in Pennsylvania, Galles was in New Mexico), it was a chore to make the trip just for that. You'd see them do it during the private testing in March, etc.

        It probably took longer to process all of the forms, credentials, etc. back then too. Even if they had 200 entries today, they could do it all pretty quick electronically. While they still want to maintain their status as an "Invitational," there's no need to require teams to submit in January anymore.
