Approximately 1,500 fans gathered on Friday evening for the fifth annual “100 Days Out” Party at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, counting down to this May’s 104th Indianapolis 500.
Guests on-hand for the occasion included former Indianapolis 500 winners (and Team Penske drivers) Simon Pagenaud and Will Power, as well as 2013 Indy 500 victor Tony Kanaan, Meyer Shank Racing driver Jack Harvey, and fan-favorite James Hinchcliffe.
Emceeing the event was Indianapolis Motor Speedway president J. Douglas Boles, and the man of the hour was also on-hand after a slew of major announcements earlier today: Roger Penske.
Boles brought Penske up on stage to speak about upcoming improvements to IMS and the Indianapolis 500 before ushering the drivers through the interview process. Once the brief interviews concluded, fans were treated to a highly-entertaining version of The Newlyweds Game – featuring Harvey, Hinchcliffe, Kanaan, and each of their significant others.
We had a blast at the event and wanted to share some of the best snapshots of the evening, so check them out below. The 104th edition of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing is just around the corner… see you at the Speedway soon!
