For years, Indianapolis Motor Speedway has hosted fans for events like the Indianapolis 500, but this weekend, the iconic race-track is appealing to a different type of fan.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs will play for the College Football National Championship Game Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. The event is estimated to bring in $150 million in economic revenue to Indianapolis.

“This was the first thing we wanted to do when we knew we were coming to Indy,” said Georgia fan Keith Brown. “I think it’s imperative that you have things to do for the fans to get out and to be able to come here for the history.”

Brown said he has such a good experience that he’ll be returning to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for May’s Indianapolis 500.

Historic sites like Indianapolis Motor Speedway are working alongside live concerts, food trucks, and fan-friendly events put on by the National Championship Host Committee in Indianapolis to make this year’s big game enjoyable, regardless of who you’re cheering for.
