If you live in the Indianapolis area, then you know the month of May is Indianapolis 500 month! You can hear the sounds of the cars on the track from downtown on clear days and the excitement radiates through the city.
If you have a little racing fan in your family, it’s a great time to get them involved. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has so much to offer children–we take our kids to run on the mounds on practice days, visit the Hall of Fame Museum, and occasionally see a race or two. And we never forget to get them a membership to the “fastest kids club in town!”
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Kids Club is for kids 2-12. It is only $25 to join and, if you have multiple children, you can get an $5 off each additional membership you buy for children in your household. Member children get a cool IMS t-shirt and membership kit that includes a “Kid-ential” Membership Card with Lanyard, Tire tote bag, Autograph Booklet, Sunglasses, and more!
Members are also given access to special events at the track. In previous year, Kids Club Members were invited to a member’s only breakfast with the Easter Bunny before the annual egg hunt at the track. There is usually a members-only holiday party with a visit from Santa himself! PLUS, member children get a free general admission ticket with any paid adult ticket to all racing events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a full year–a great perk for race fans!
One of my family’s favorite perks of the membership is getting recognized at different racing events at the track. The “Kid-ential” in the kit has a list of events at the track to check-off as you attend. Just visit the Kids Club Booth on special days, get a stamp on the “Kid-ential” and a prize! The Kids Club Booth is usually located by the kids fun area, but if you can’t find it ask a yellow shirt!
