Indy 500 ticket reveal expected Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH ) — Tickets for the 99th Indianapolis 500 are expected to be revealed Thursday. Predictions are the image of 2014 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay will be on the tickets.

Tickets for the race on May 24, 2015 are already for sale starting at $40 for general admission. If you want to spend the big day in the Snake Pit, that will run another $10 or $50 for VIP admission.

Country music fans are counting down the days until the Legends Day Concert with headliners Florida Georgia Line. Tickets cost $40 or $75 for the Firestone Concert Pit.

If you want to enjoy the whole Indy 500 weekend in style, Glamping is back for 2015. This camping meets hotel amenities set-up was a big hit last year when IMS rolled it out for the first time, so you might want to reserve your spot quickly if you want to experience Glamptown. Four-night packages run anywhere from $900 to $1,100.

For the first time this year, the Bronze Badges for the 2015 Month of May are available online. The behind-the-scene access pass is always a sought-after piece of racing memorabilia, but it also allows holders to visit Gasoline Alley to watch drivers and their teams prepare for the Angie’s List Grand Prix and Indy 500. They’re first come, first served and run $125 through the end of this month. Then if any remain, the price jumps to $150 in April.

Junior Garage Credentials are $75, but you can only get those at the IMS Credentials Office.
