Why Sponsor Horsepower500?

  • Sponsors enjoy exclusive benefits and help make more than 750 treatments possible each month at Children's TherAplay.
  • You'll also receive positive event media coverage - see the Media Tab above for details. 

Will my favorite Indy 500 driver be there?

There's a strong possibility! Here's the thing: The drivers are all very excited but their schedules are not their own. Many of them won't know until early May whether or not they're able to participate and, also, sometimes things change.

In the meantime, you might be interested to know who came out to play in 2018

We could never thank all of you enough for the once-in-a-lifetime experience Parker had at the #Horsepower500. Our once shy, reserved, self-conscious boy was on top of the world, and exclaimed, "I want to play 'race day' EVERY YEAR!"
- Jenny, Parker's mother
