    I would go. The venue and event are legendary. When I had the pleasure of visiting, I could feel the ghosts of races and racers past...just awesome.

    capped at 40% capacity, my understanding is long time ticket holders have been given preferential treatment; might be a hard ticket to come by.

    but worth doing once. personally, if your first time, I'd wait until it's a full house, just for the authentic experience.

    or get hammered in the snake pit :p

    My only 500 was in 1994. Hitched a ride in a Penske Lear from the Whittingtons’ FBO . Watched The Captain’s Mercedes engined surprise crush the field. Amazing driver group. Sat next to Parnelli at Mario’s retirement dinner. No point in diluting that experience. I’m very fortunate.

    OK, word "on the ground" is not good.....Indiana is wide open, except for Marion County.

    He also opined that the social events, like the Foyt's Wine Tasting, will be in the cross hairs of the 40% enforcement effort.
    I may ride out and see what the odds are of coming up with Pit Credentials!

    Seems the more likely at this point..

    Oh I have been several times, several ways.
    Going with Uncle Charlie was best (charter plane)...
    Then again, during my married days....the race finished on Tuesday or something....wife went home and left me with a cute Yellow Hat girl..

    Thanks everyone..
