Indianapolis Motor Speedway Offers "Glamping" Packages For Indy 500
Published March 6, 2014
TURBO BOOST: ESPN.com's John Oreovicz wrote the Indy 500 "got a big boost in the last week when programs were announced for former CART and Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve and NASCAR star Kurt Busch." The presence of Villeneuve and Busch will "benefit the IndyCar Series and the Indianapolis 500 by attracting national and international attention to the genuinely compelling storyline of a pair of high-profile drivers trying something new or different." For a series "struggling for television viewers and sponsorship dollars, that can only be a positive" (ESPN.com, 3/5). In N.Y., Naila-Jean Meyers noted Busch has a new website that will "allow fans to monitor his workouts and his physical condition and to track his travel back and forth" as he prepares to run the Indy 500 and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 in the same day (N.Y. TIMES, 3/5).
