Those finding themselves with revved-up appetites at the Indianapolis 500 have limited options for foods at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this year. But there are still plenty of stalls and carts to load up on eats.

This Indy 500 will be first with spectators since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and the 2019 sale of IMS. 

Food trucks and local companies have set up shops around the track to serve sandwiches, chicken tenders and iced coffee, among other treats.  

Fans also have the chance to flex their cooler game, thanks to a policy that lets them enter with their own food and beverages.

If you’re one of the lucky thousands to be at IMS on Sunday, here’s what you can expect.

No significant changes since Penske acquisition

The track has seen no significant foodservice changes in the wake of the 2019 acquisition by Penske Corp., according to Kevin Memolo, communications manager for Levy, the Chicago-based company that handles food concessions at IMS.

Rather, what differences fans will notice in the menu selection and payment processes are due to COVID-19 and efforts to improve health, safety and speed of service.
