INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 16, 2015) – Saturday was also Lemonade Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Ten lucky kids were paired with Indy car drivers to raise money for different charities through their own lemonade stands.

The young business owners set-up stands on Pagoda Plaza.

“Lemonade Day is about inspiring young kids in Indiana to become entrepreneurs and I think lemonade day is a fun way to make that happen,” said Krystal Rapoport, 10.

“A lot of the profits are going to charities, like our proceeds go to ASPCA,” said Senna Maher, 9.

The Julian Center, the Indianapolis Humane Society, and the Susan G. Komen foundation are among the other charities benefitting from today.
