Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1909, is now an asphalt track with flat straightaways.

IMS has the claim as the world’s largest spectator sporting venue with permanent seating reaching 250,000 or more.

The track was paved in 1909 with 3.2 million bricks. A “yard of bricks” is at the starting-finish line.

RECAPPING THE 2011 BRICKYARD 400:

Paul Menard earned his first Sprint Cup win, holding off crowd-favorite, Jeff Gordon by 0.7 seconds. His crew chief’s pit strategy helped Menard lead 11 of the final 16 laps.

Jamie McMurray, the last driver to surrender the lead, finished fourth in the race. Kasey Kahne started the race second and led a high of 48 laps but finished a disappointing 18th.

Menard’s dad, John, has been a car owner for many drivers in the Indy 500.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads west on this Sunday to the San Francisco area for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, California.

Formerly known as Sears Point, Infineon Raceway is located just 35 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge and is surrounded by 100 wineries.

The elevation drops from 160 feet from Turn 4 on the track to Turn 10.

The asphalt track is 1.99-miles long.

The race is 219 miles which equals 110 laps. This is one of the smaller venues for a NASCAR event, with a crowd of only 47,000.

Jeff Gordon has won five times in 19 starts and leads the way as no other driver has won more than twice at the track in Cup events.

Infineon is a unique place. Almost 3,000 sheep call the place home. The raceway is home to a vineyard of Pinot noir vines. The vineyard, on a hillside near the track’s main office, opened in 2005. Since the 2006 race, the winning driver has sipped from the champion’s goblet in the Wine Country’s Winner’s Circle.
