GMR Grand Prix Kicks Off Month Of May

As the GMR Grand Prix celebrates its 10th running on May 13, the event has become a special part of the month-of-May festivities at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was Saturday, May 10, 2014, when the first NTT IndyCar Series road course race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was run with Simon Pagenaud winning the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. At that time, the response to having a road course race just two weeks prior to the Indianapolis 500 was mixed. Miles took over management of IndyCar and Indianapolis Motor Speedway prior to the 2013 month of May. “I grew up in Indianapolis and have always been a fan of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race and appreciated the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Miles said. “I bet we had 30,000 people for the weekend,” Miles said of that first Grand Prix of Indianapolis.
