INDIANAPOLIS -- For the first time since 1949, Indiana residents will be able to watch the Indianapolis 500 without leaving their homes.
For past races, a traditional blackout has limited viewers to staying updated through a radio broadcast or attending the race person. However, according to WXIN, the 100th Indy 500 will be televised.
This decision to end the TV blackout follows the news of the race’s first sellout in history.
It was reported that the upcoming race is expected to have the largest crowd since the 80s.
