The crowd at the 2023 Indianapolis 500 was expected by race officials to be one of the biggest in race history, and so far it has not disappointed.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles said earlier this week that it would be nearly sold out, with about 230,000 tickets sold. And that was not counting the Snake Pit or infield.

Check out the massive crowd through the eyes of our photojournalists and reporters on scene:


Poster Comment:

33 alcohol burning cars running open headers about a mile away. 300,000 drunken fans. Helicopters. Blue Angels. Hookers. Fire Trucks. I couldn't hear any of it over the Mexicans a block away.

Ok, I heard the Blue Angels for a second while they were right over my house...

After reading Al Bloemker's 500 Miles To Go I gave it to a car guru friend I worked with in the auto industry. You ever read it?

I'm not really from Indianapolis, I am from Kokomo, up north. The Hulmans were the driving force at the track back when I gave a damn about racing.
