Blog Ambassadors Get Connected to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Throughout the year we'll hear from eight bloggers as they share about their family's time in the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® and how it inspires them to explore these sports back at home.

You can’t be an Indy native without knowing about the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Indy is the #1 racing capital in the world, so it wasn’t surprising to see the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® got in on the racing game. From the famous Pagoda to the oval racing track, you can come to watch the checkered flag fall and race to the finish line!

Do you have a little racer in your family? Do they dream of becoming a racing LEGEND? Here’s the starting lineup of activities you can do at home that will help strengthen your kiddo’s skills on and off the track!

Visit the Sports Experience

Let’s get racing! Head out to the sports experience and take in a couple of laps on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pedal Car Racetrack. We recently took the kids out for a visit and they loved it! There’s nothing cooler than crossing those famous bricks at the finish line! We then headed over to the Church Brothers Collision Repair Drag Strip to test their need for SPEED! We watched alongside other parents enjoying the evening out. It’s great fun for everyone!

Learn More about the Sport as a Family

One of the best ways to get into the racing scene is to attend a race! You'll learn so much about the passion of the sport to support your little racer! As you gear up for a race, rent books at the library and just geek out about all things racing with your entire family. Create an environment of learning and engagement in your child’s passion! Want to get hands on? Visit the sports experience and take in a couple of laps on the track.
