Post-Indy 500 clean-up underway at Indianapolis Motor Speedway


SPEEDWAY, Ind.-- The 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 is formally over, and now it's time for a massive cleanup. Hundreds of volunteers will be at the Racing Capital of the World this Memorial Day making it occur.

Several organizations are assisting, including high school groups, churches and different nonprofits from across central Indiana.

" Our neighborhoods go through offering," stated Jeff Bates, one of the volunteers with Frankton High School FCA. "Volunteering is a fantastic thing, and the more we offer, the more we help people. I think it's not simply assisting them, but it's likewise pleasing and you get a sense of thankfulness out of that too."

Last year, the track had 700 volunteers assisting, and all of the waste was gone within 66 hours from the start of the race. It will take some time to get everything cleaned up this year because fans spent more time at the track on Sunday than they have for previous Indy 500s since of a four-hour rain hold-up..

As the cleanup continues, race fans are currently counting down the days up until the 109th running of the Indianapolis 500. IMS authorities sent out ticket renewal notifications to fans late Monday early morning.
