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. (Some photos below are of
the silver badge.)
