Welcome to Indy Speedway!
This website is solely the work of one guy and is not affiliated with IMS or IndyCar.
This website began in December 1996 and was divided into two websites:
"How to Survive the Indy 500...and Still Have Fun!", a visitor's guide to the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Back then, the Speedway's official website was sorely
lacking in any information. Within a year or two, this site became "Dan's
"The IndyClub" site was a visitor's guide to Indianapolis which included a complete bar and
hotel listing. Later, the Indiana Bands webpage was started. After failing to ever get the
indyclub.com domain that I wanted, I brought the site under the Indyspeedway.com umbrella
From the beginning, I had these guiding principles:
1) To provide information that was not already available somewhere else on the web,
2) To make it fast loading,
3) To provide accurate information,
4) To make it user-friendly and easy to navigate.
Adobe Photoshop is the program used to render the graphics. My current camera is a Nikon
D80. An Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom was used from 2000-2006. A Sony Mavica was used
prior to 2000.
I coded this website in HTML by hand. But, in 2006, I began tinkering with Yahoo's Site
Builder tool. I liked it. I was able to create web pages faster and easier. I decided to
begin using it to build my new pages. I also began planning a complete redesign for the
website, to mark it's 10th anniversary. You can view the old website here.
In January of 2007, I unveiled the new look along with a new logo. This redesign included
system (powered by Deluxe-Menu.com.) which I began removing where possible in
September 2012 as it doesn't work with the Google Chrome browser.
If you would like me to make your company a webpage, drop me an e-mail.
I have met some interesting people and fun race fans via this website! It has also led to
interviews with a few television shows, magazines and newspapers.
I receive lots of questions via email. The most common question people have is, "How good
are my seats?"
I like to get cool stories from race fans who talk about a special or funny moment that
happened to them at the Speedway. I list these stories on the Cool Tales webapge.
