Indy 500: Join us in the pits

March 17, 2020
How would you like to see the Indianapolis 500 up close and personal? We’re giving a couple of readers the chance to do just that.

You might have read about our sponsorship of DragonSpeed, one of the NTT IndyCar Series competitors. Electronic Design and Machine Design Senior Content Directors Bill Wong and Bob Vavra will be covering all the action from the pits at the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) in Speedway, Indiana on May 22, 2020. We will be cheering on Ben Henley and the DragonSpeed crew.

If you’re into this type of racing, then we have a treat for you. Evaluation Engineering, Electronic Design, and Machine Design are running a contest called Join us in the Pits. Yes, we have two grandstand tickets. The winner also receives a three-night stay in Indy and a three-day pass that provides staff access to the track entry, pit, and garage areas. A $1,000 travel voucher rounds out the winnings.

You can enter once per day to increase your chances on the Join Us in the Pits site. Just become a member of Evaluation Engineering, Electronic Design or Machine Design, where you can also subscribe to any of our newsletters.

The first race at the “Brickyard” was in 1911. The track was paved in bricks at the time. Quite a bit has changed since then, and the latest cars have certainly become safer than their earlier counterparts.
