Locals Help Renovate the Speedrome to Attract More Fans
When most people think of Indianapolis they think raceways. Locals, however, see the community at a much different angle, but this situation demands their attention. About 73 years ago, the Sexton brothers decided to make a small race track in a desolate field in South Indianapolis. Needless to say, today it is known as as the Speedrome. This intense asphalt circle once created large crowds of enthusiastic fans each season!
New owners have now taken up the difficult task of managing the Speedrome. They plan on restoring the track after years of declining attendance, income and maintenance. A group of willing volunteers plan on helping out for the track’s weekend opener. It is creating the some excitement for the locals to have their old raceway restored back into its original state!
2014 is the year that the Speedrome, in south Indianapolis, is going to make its debut. Obviously, the track is abused and in need of some love, but after locals pitch in to help it will be good as new! They are looking forward to a new season, along with fans that still enjoy a good race.
