NASCAR RACE #20 PREVIEW: Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, today at 1:00 p.m.

 

The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves into the midwest city of Indianapolis for the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” 400 at the Brickyard.

Race time is 1:00 p.m. on ESPN.

The 400-mile race consists of 160 laps on the 2.5-mile oval and a crowd of 250,000-plus is expected.

The famous brickyard is best known to everyone as the home of the Indianapolis 500 which occurs every May around Memorial Day.

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 top 10 starting lineup with their qualifying speed for this year’s race includes:
