Sports action this weekend in Indianapolis will be off the charts.
Friday, at Victory Field, the Indians honored their 10-millionth fan. It kicked off one of many sports-related events this weekend.
From The Speedway, to the Pacers, the Tribe, even a mini-marathon in Geist, there is something for everyone.
On the track, on the hardwood, running the course, or catching the game, Indianapolis is the center of the sports universe.
“This weekend, it is amazing to live in Indy, but if you do not even live in Indy it is a great time to come to Indy,” said sports fan Veronica Boyle. “It is a good time to be here. I’m real excited.”
Pacers excitement is at its pinnacle. The team can close out the Knicks and head to a showdown with the Heat.
Evan Gilmore: “They are going to win it all.”
Reporter: “Think they can beat the Knicks?”
Evan Gilmore: “Of course. Paul George, he is my man.”
The Indians honored their 10-millionth fan to walk through the turnstiles, in front of a packed house. Cam Maddox walked away with a wonderful prize package.
“I am just really excited,” said Maddox.
Over at The Speedway, world-class cars kept fans, like Jayme Gehringer, on the edge of their seats.
“I am so excited to be a part of it,” said Gehringer. “It is awesome, they do a great job.” This city, we just keep on going. It is just too much fun living here.”
And, speaking of cars, The Mecum auction is in town too. Millions of dollars in cash and cars will change hands over the weekend.
Matt Stallons and his two sons made the trip all the way from St. Louis to make a memory.
“We have always watched Mecum on TV and just took the kids out of school today and wanted to see what is going on with the next level of cars,” said Stallons.
“It is great and I will remember this for the rest of my life,” said Mitch Stallons.
So if you are a sports fan, and you ever needed motivation to make a memory of your own, look no further than downtown Indianapolis for something to cheer about.
