Biographical or historical data
The Indianapolis 500 is one of the world's most famous motor racing event. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) was built by Carl Fisher and the first races took place in 1909. In 1911, Fisher announced his plans for a new 500 mile race to be run on the 2.5 mile oval racetrack. The first Indianapolis 500, also known as the Indy 500, took place on May 30, 1911 and was won by Ray Harroun. For many years the Indy 500 was the only race run at the IMS, but that changed on August 6,1994 with the inaugural running of the NASCAR cup series race, the Brickyard 400. Since then, other motorsports have taken place at the Speedway, including IROC and Formula One races, but IMS continues to be the home of the Indy 500, "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing."
