The fight over federal funding is now impacting the Indy 500.

There won’t be any government funded fly-overs of any military style jets at this year’s race.  Only private plane owners will be taking part in any events during the Indy 500 weekend.

There also won’t be an active duty military parade; instead, they will have a veterans parade.

The government has made similar moves with other military jets, including the Blue Angels.
