    I would think any large sporting event would be posted.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but postings do not hold the power of law in Indiana. It's only trespass if you refuse to leave.

    This is correct.

    Indy is a very gun friendly state as a whole. You might check with The Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be sure there isn't anything posted. I've not been to a race to know for sure if they have metal detectors at the entrances or not.

    The entry HERE on the Indy Gun Owners Forum doesn't appear to know for sure.

    One part of Indiana law that could pose a problem, but is unlikely. Would be if the 500 was being used by a school as a school sponsored function. If this is the case, the Speedway is effectively a school zone when it comes to firearms.

    I was at the track today for a free concert with Stone Temple Pilots I did not see any kind of posts about weapons. I carried with no problem. I have search the 500 site and do not see anything. So I am assuming I am legal!

    I live in the outskirts of Indianapolis, I was at the track today also and I carry. I've never had any issues but then it is concealed.....I printed badly today as I had on a light sport shirt over my holster and no jacket, rained like hell and my shirt was soaked, my grandson who is 8 said 'Grandpa' whats that under your shirt.....I diverted his attention elsewhere and nothing else was said...hopefully the weather will work for us on Sunday, should be a good race.......
    3 ladies in the field this year, should be interesting....I can hear the crew chiefs now, 'you just got passed by a girl'.....

    Might want to take a light rain jacket or poncho this time just in case.

    Enjoy the race guys!

    I have been to the Speedway and have taken my bike for a trip around the track. What a hoot. Was carrying the whole time. No problems. Just don't wave it around if your guy loses.
