IndyCar Series Seating Chart
Every track that the IndyCar Series races on has its unique layout and seating chart. The oval tracks on the schedule all have massive multi-level grandstands that can oversee a majority of the track. The road courses are purpose-built tracks that will have permanent grandstands built at the start-finish line and various passing points around the track. Street circuits will have a similar set up to the road courses, but all the seating is in temporary grandstands due to the races taking place on closed city roads.
General admission options are available at all road courses and street circuits. This allows fans the opportunity to freely wander between general admission spectator areas to see different vantage points of the on-track action. Some ovals, including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will also offer general admission tickets. General admission tickets at ovals are usually designated for a specific section of the grandstands. In the case of the Indianapolis 500, a general admission ticket lets fans freely roam the infield and watch from viewing mounds located inside the turns.
