What You'll Get
Automobiles have a natural inclination toward speed, which is why it took mankind thousands of years to figure out how to catch and domesticate them. Enjoy the fast-paced antics of high-octane livestock with today's Groupon: for $22, you get four opening-night (Saturday, April 2) tickets to Indianapolis Speedrome in Indianapolis (up to a $44 value). Without a Groupon, tickets are $5 for children age 6–11, and children younger than 5 get free admission.
Indianapolis Speedrome is the home of the World Figure 8 Championship and one of the earliest tracks to implement stock cars. Opening-night guests will be welcomed to the storied arena at 6:53 p.m., with a command to have the cars start their engines at 6:58 p.m. For more than three hours, the internal-combusting stallions will burn pure adrenaline as they race on the stadium's oval and Figure 8 tracks in desperate bids for the approval and affection of their masters. The first hour's heats let each make and model bake the track to a golden brown before the featured events burn it to ash as muscled Roadrunners go head-to-head with spritely Bandoleros. The evening concludes with a showdown among high-class, custom late models and an on-track trophy presentation. Seating is first come, first served, and attendees are encouraged to arrive early.
