INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The town of Speedway says it's again implementing a residential permit parking program for this weekend's Brickyard 400 NASCAR race.
Town Manager Barbara Lawrence says the Indianapolis enclave developed the pilot program to give its residents and their guests a better chance for on-street parking during race events without having to place traffic cones, barricades or other items on the street to reserve parking spaces.
She says eliminating the items creates cleaner and safer streets.
The permits apply only to an area south of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway bounded by 16th, Main and 10th Streets and Lyndhurst Drive. It's in effect Friday and Saturday. If the race is delayed by rain, it also applies to Sunday.
The town began the pilot program in May for the Indianapolis 500.
