It will mark the third time SVRA will host hundreds of racers in a multi-day format that uses both the IMS 2.434-mile road course and the track’s 2.5-mile oval.

SVRA President and CEO Tony Parella said, “So many people have contacted me about plans for next year I thought it was important to confirm with race fans and our participants alike that we will be back in 2016. All I can say is stay tuned because more information will follow.”

The centerpiece of the three-day racing event is the “Indy Legends” Celebrity Pro-Am which in 2015 featured 33 veteran drivers of the Indianapolis 500. The timed 50-minute race of American muscle cars on the Speedway’s 2.434-mile road course used 1963 to 1972 vintage 355 cubic inch Corvettes, Camaros and Mustangs of the Group 6 SVRA class. The professionals were paired with amateur drivers, splitting stints at the wheel at their discretion.

Bob Lazier, father of 1996 Indianapolis 500 winner Buddy Lazier and himself a starter in the 1981 Indianapolis 500, won this year’s Pro-Am with co-driver Jim Caudle in the latter’s 1969 Corvette.
