Indianapolis is race car country.  It would seem that the entire state of Indiana, fitting as it is the crossroads of America, is infatuated with racing of some sort.  Coming from Bloomington, I have experienced racing of the bike kind as I have cheered on friends riding around the historic cinder bike track for the annual Little 500 race.  Now, having made the move to Indianapolis I am in the home of two of NASCAR’s largest races and the historical Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Indianapolis is race car country.  It would seem that the entire state of Indiana, fitting as it is the crossroads of America, is infatuated with racing of some sort.  Coming from Bloomington, I have experienced racing of the bike kind as I have cheered on friends riding around the historic cinder bike track for the annual Little 500 race.  Now, having made the move to Indianapolis I am in the home of two of NASCAR’s largest races and the historical Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

I have yet to experience NASCAR racing in the capital city though with its known fun of camping, eating, and enjoyment of beverages of choice.  This weekend however I am in luck Brickyard 400 is this weekend in Speedway, Indianaas a race less well known to learning race fans like myself, the Brickyard 400, takes place on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Events begin Thursday as the camping lots are open for visitors and official practice begins Friday.  The weekend boasts Qualifications held on Saturday with the actual race taking place Sunday afternoon.

Starting in 1994, Brickyard 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup race 400-miles long with 160 laps around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  This race boasts more than 250,000 fans attending annually making it the most attended NASCAR event.

A very popular sport, NASCAR racing requires certain equipment be it for the drivers/teams or the race fans.  One such piece of equipment is eyewear, specifically sunglasses.  You rarely see a driver outside of his or her car without shades covering their eyes.  Same should be for the fans this weekend as shading your eyes can help you see all of the action on the track better as well as protect you from harmful UV-rays that can cause vision damage.  Better yet, Purifier polarized sunglasses would be my best piece of equipment advice for fans this weekend as these lenses block glare on the track.

Don’t miss a thing this racing weekend by wearing your sunglasses!
