INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The month of May is here, and, in Indianapolis, that brings the most exciting news as the Indianapolis 500 is just days away.

Jimenez says she expected there to be about eight Latino restaurants there. “This is the most Latino restaurants at Rev.”

Jimenez also says the Hispanic Business Council, during a May 14 event at the speedway, will give out awards for people who are paving the way for more diversity and inclusion in the region.

She adds that a U.S. naturalization ceremony will also happen May 14.
