|History of the Bronze Badge
The race fan possessing a Bronze Badge gets free admission
into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and entrance into the
garage area during the month of May, except on race days.
Current pricing (2022) for a Bronze Badge is $150.
Cardboard or laminate badges were utilized from the inaugural
Indianapolis 500 in 1911 through 1937, and were assigned
only to event participants.
Beginning in 1938, more durable metal badges were used
before IMS Bronze Badges made their debut in 1947 and
were initially sold to the general public in the early 1990s.
Today they all are cherished and valuable collectibles.
These badges are also made in silver and are appropriately
called Silver Badges. Silver gains you entrance into the pits.
