IDDC to launch website highlight Hoosier racing history

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Indiana Destination Development Corporation announced on Wednesday that it is working in collaboration with Indianapolis Motor Speedway to launch "The Motorsports Circuit IN Indiana" microsite.

This site will show the history of racing in Indiana and explore why racing is so embedded in Hoosier culture.  

"Racing is a part of the Hoosier state that dates back over 100 years and has played a pivotal role in shaping our communities," said Elaine Bedel, IDDC Secretary and Chief Executive Officer. "We want to put this history on display, while also giving users access to present day attractions and events that they can visit themselves."

This web-based experience will serve as a tribute to honor the drivers, pioneers, and fans who helped to put Indiana motorsports on the map, and to help visitors understand why racing culture is so deeply ingrained in Indiana.  

"The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is proud to be a hub for Indiana's racing traditions and to partner with IDDC in celebration of our state's racing heritage," said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President. "The Motorsports Circuit IN Indiana compiles this legacy for both residents and visitors to experience."
