The least expensive ticket is the general admission ticket.
The price varies depending on the event.
Buy your general admission at the gate with cash, whether you are walking in or driving in.
You can also buy them in advance from the ticket office (317) 492-6700.
On practice and qualifying days everyone just pays the general admission price which lets you
sit anywhere you want in the grand stands that are open that day.
On race day you cannot sit in the stands with just a general admission ticket. There are many
grassy viewing mounds around the perimeter of the infield where you can sit. You can bring
blankets or lawn chairs to sit on.
Children 12 and younger will receive free general admission for every event. If you want them
to sit in the stands with you, you must then buy them a seat ticket.

The sooner you buy your tickets and parking passes from the Speedway,
the more money you will save. For many passes, the price goes up as
the day of the event gets nearer.
Beginning in 2018, a $3 service fee will apply to each ticket or wristband
purchased for an IMS racing or concert event (excluding practice and
qualifications). The handling fee applied to each order will be reduced
from $9 to $5.
If you wish to renew your tickets for next year, don't dilly dally. A few
months after the race, if you haven't paid to renew your tickets, the
speedway sells them to someone else!
