Our friends over at the IU Student Foundation who are responsible for putting on the race do a really, really great job putting on a world-class race. But do you know what the money from Little 500 is used for? Do you know how the race got started? Do you know who Howdy Wilcox is?
If not, we highly recommend taking a look at this history page from the IUSF website.
The other great thing you can find on the IUSF website is a searchable database of all Little 500 records. As Little 500 nerds, we think it’s pretty cool and so we thought you might like to have easy access to it, too. Check out the database here.
One final thing we thought you all might like to have in one convenient location here. Interested in going to the race? Purchase tickets from IUSF here. Can’t make it to Bloomington? Both races will be streamed live on WIUX radio and televised on AXS TV.
Women’s race day is April 24 and men’s race day is April 25.
