Yes, the Indy 500 Fan of the Day program is back and we’re ready to find the best fans Indianapolis Motor Speedway has to offer! This year, Cholula Hot Sauce became a sponsor of Fan of the Day and will award prizes to the lucky fan chosen each day.
We’ve seen how fun, crazy, and excited you fans can be and we’re asking you to bring all those qualities to the Speedway for the rest of May. Winners will receive a 4-pack of sauces, a t-shirt, and a 2ft. tall trophy bottle of Cholula Hot Sauce. Their picture will also be featured on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway website and Cholula’s Facebook page. Love hot sauce? Head on over to their Facebook page and let them know you caught the Fan of the Day!
Community Day was underway, and so were the afternoon’s autograph sessions. Fans had spent their morning lining up to receive bracelets that would get them into the autograph sessions later that day. Joined by Grace, one of few children across the nation chosen as Scholastic Kid Reporters, I made my way through the line of fans waiting for autographs. We knew this had to be the best spot to find a true Indy 500 fan. Our eyes scanned the line of eager fans when we spotted someone wearing a hat completely filled with collectible pins. We knew Terry would be a great fan of the day. It wasn’t until later that we realized Terry had also been fan of the day last year. Guess it takes a dedicated and true fan to be chosen two years in a row!
