Indy 500 American Spectacle Auto Racing

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing remains an American icon

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis 500 has outlasted two world wars, the decline of the automobile industry, a bitter split in open-wheel racing and more death than anyone cares to recall.

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing might as well be called the Greatest Survivor in Sports.

Through it all, though, this iconic event in America's heartland has endured. And after another round of pageantry, another rendition of "Back Home Again in Indiana," it will run Sunday for the 100th time.
