Indianapolis Raceway Park is a short track motor racing facility located in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is not to be confused with Indianapolis Motor Speedway, IMS, which is referred to as a superspeedway, although its construction vastly predates the use of that term. Surprisingly to some, the vast majority of motorsports events held in Indianapolis are held at Indianapolis Raceway Park, including a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race and a NASCAR Busch Series event.
Sprint car races and other events suited to a shorter track are held here. Raceway Park also traditionally stages an extensive program on the Saturday night preceding the Indianapolis 500 event at IMS on the last Sunday in May, serving as something of an unofficial preliminary event to the far more famous one.
