From:
https://fox59.com/2016/06/07/photo-s...00th-indy-500/
I can't argue what I see in the article but I remember claims of 400,000 in attendance back in the CART days so I still have to wonder. Have they lowered the seat count like Daytona or allowing less into the infield, making for easier "sellout", and again, for the all so special 100th? (Which I agree is special...that's a long time....Le Mans is closing in too....)
Also, and importantly, I hold not much credence in the article as a very major blunder concerns me....ABC's live coverage since 1965???

"With the event declared a total sellout, the local blackout on the live broadcast of the race will be lifted for the first time since ABC began live coverage in 1965.

Uh-uh. Not so. '66-69 I saw it live via closed circuit in RKO theatres. Before and after that it was days later on Wide World of Sports, followed by same day tape delay to prime time. It was the mid eighties ('85 or '86 I'm sure, as I was racing r/c cars on Sundays '82-84 and had no worries about missing it due to the delay) that it went live.

Edit: Found this:
"From 1986 through 2018, ABC televised the race live in its entirety. However, at the request of the Speedway, Indianapolis affiliate WRTV was required to blackout the live broadcast and carry it on tape delay in prime time to encourage local race attendance."

btw, is "rammed" akin to our "crammed" or just a typo?

I know it was rhetorical, I just don't always play a long. Rammed is akin to our crammed, one of those descriptive English expressions I've picked up.

I've heard the claims of 400k, too. Pretty sure the turn 1 through 4 or 5 complex for the road course (infield of T4 of the speedway) reduced the potential capacity of the infield, but I didn't an article to know the place was pretty much packed for the 100th - I saw that it was on my color television set.
