Unlike many race tracks, you can bring food and drinks to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!


Allows you to bring in bigger items for tailgaiting, such as tarps, big coolers and grills.
Don't bring glass bottles/containers, drones, or things to ride on, such as scooters, skateboards, etc.

Regardless of where you park, remember that the cooler you take into the stands on Race Day
cannot be larger than 18"x14"x14".  

         TRACK FOOD

IMS Concession Stands - They are spread all around the track.  The many IMS stands generally sell the same things.

2020 Menu Prices: $12 Loaded Steak Fries, $10 Ribeye Steak, $10 Kabob, $9 Gyro, $9 Philly Cheesesteak,
$7 Cheeseburger, $10 Pork Tenderloin, $10 Chicken Tenders, $8 Corndog,  $5 Hot Dog, $9 Nachos, $5 French Fries

Other Concession Stands - There are food trailers, kiosks and stands scattered around where you can find  other
food and drink options


Beer, Soda and Water are available at the track.
You can find some mixed drinks too, such as Margaritas, Rum Runners and Bloody Marys.

2020 Drink Prices:  $4 bottled Water & Soda, $7 Sweet Tea or Lemonade,  $9 Cocktails,
$7 Domestic Beer, $8 Premium Beer.

If you bring in a alcoholic mixer, note that it is very hard to get a cup of ice at the speedway.  
Soda is sold in plastic bottles, NOT in cups of ice.

           FOOD TO BRING

People often bring sandwiches or fried chicken, and some chips or candy in their beer coolers.
If you're in a hurry, swing into a local grocery and pIck-up prepared sandwiches or box lunches.

If you go straight to your car after the race, you will probably be in traffic for awhile.  Having some
cold drinks and snacks in a cooler, waiting for you in your car, can come in handy.

The concession stands close when the race ends, so pack enough food/drink for after the race if
you will be hanging out for an hour or two after the race.


There is a limit on cooler size if you are walking into the track on race day.  Since seating is tight,
they do limit cooler size to 18" x 14" x 14" which is large enough to hold a 12-pack.  
Since you will be doing a lot of walking, I recommend using a cooler with two wheels and a handle.

The Greatest Spectacle in ...Tailgating?
You can NOT buy beer on Sunday until noon.

Avoid long lines by going to the concession stands during the race.

Wet-naps & Paper towels can be handy in the stands for messy foods.
