The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, now 108 years old, is second only to England's now-defunct Brooklands as the oldest track built expressly for automobile racing. It is also the world's largest sporting venue by capacity ever built, being able to host 257,000 spectators. The track is a classic, flat 2.5 mile oval with 9.2 degree banked turns, parts of which are used for the 2.6-mile road course added in 2000. It is most well-known for the annual Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR's Brickyard 400 races. This model of the track includes the track, all of the grandstands, museum, Brickyard Crossing Golf Resort, and bordering roads.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
