Racing crowds and excitement describe the Racing Capital of the World. Speedway, Indiana is home to the Indianapolis 500, Nascar's Brickyard 400, and Formula One's U.S. Gran Prix. But Speedway is more than a town that surrounds the most famous automobile racing track in the world. The city is proud of its quality schools, and residents have prospered from the businesses in the area. Civic pride runs strong through this community where generations of families have remained in the same neighborhoods, and sometimes in the same house.
