In today’s podcast episode, the topic is the Indy 500 by the Numbers.

This coming Sunday, May 30th, will be the 105th running of the Indy 500, so we thought we would do a simple analysis of the track and the drivers; hopefully, it will make watching the race more enjoyable.

Let’s take a look at track dimensions
  • The Indy 500 oval track is 2.5 Miles or 4 Kilometers in length.
  • The track consists of:
    • Two long straightaways that are each 3,300 Feet or 1006.5 Meters in length
    • Two short straightaways that are 660 Feet or 201 Meters long
    • Four corners that are 1320 Feet long or 399 Meters

Looking at those numbers an Indy 500 driver will spend 40% of their time in a turn.
