SPEEDWAY, Ind. — Anticipation is already at fever pitch for the sold-out 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

But officials at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway turned their attention to the future of the race during a news conference Thursday.

Hulman & Company CEO Mark Miles, IMS president Doug Boles and Verizon IndyCar Series driver and 2014 Indy 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay discussed the legacy of the Indianapolis 500 and unveiled the logo for next year’s race.

In addition, Boles talked about the “Race to Renew” program, a special push this year to encourage fans who have tickets for this year’s race to renew them for next year. The renewal push begins at 12:01 a.m. on May 30. Fans will then have 500 hours to lock in their current seats or get first in line for upgrades. In addition, they’ll receive some other benefits:

  • A commemorative 2016 Indy 500 DVD
  • IMS concert pre-sale access
  • Special insider access to events and experiences
  • Commemorative tickets and packaging (reorders only)
  • Access to a party 101 days out

“Race to Renew” will wrap up on June 8, 2016, at 8 p.m. Learn more information at the IMS website.
