The Indy 500 is getting near after seeing many changes and surprises in the IndyCar Season.

Will the fans attend the Indy 500 venue?
We have been speculating and debating about how the Indy 500 should be happening. Due to safety matters, it is ideal to limit the number of attendees or ban the fans entirely. In other sports, the organizers have different ways to handle the event to the max.
The uncertainty has been taking place for some time now. And the longer the questions are revolving around, the more it draws the speculations and rumors amongst the racing community and same-minded people. IndyCar and IMS have been looking for the best strategies that can be better than the event’s predecessor.
No matter what the reason, the show must go on. The answer might not be satisfying for some folks because they have to ask for refunds for their tickets. Some folks might have reserved the rooms for their entourage to enjoy the festivity together at the venue.
This topic is also one of the essential points to follow. In 2021, we will rarely see IndyCar in action. NBC will place some IndyCar races on the streaming to present what the fans want to see.
