Banker's Life Fieldhouse is the home of the Indiana Pacers of the NBA.

A temporary race track was built for racing on the same weekend as the PRI Trade Show at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

An NBA baskeball game was held Friday night and less than 24 hours later, the track was ready for racing.

Problems with ventilation caused a number of air quality delays. Other problems were dust, no limit on the number of yellows an individual could cause, and racing that went into the wee hours of the morning.

Fans demonstrated their frustration in a number of ways (writing a message in the dust during a post-midnight air quality delay shown), and this was a once and done event.


Dean Reynolds: Love these Guy. Can't wait to see all 1500 Plus. Lol

Guy Smith: The goal is 2500, not 1500.

Don Salzer: Worst race i have ever been to. The air thing i get....but the big problem was the stupid berm they kept hitting and hooking and spinning...therefore 2 laps and a yellow...all nite long...which then caused more smoke and therefore 2 complete stoppages to air the building out...I kept saying all night long all they had to do was move the damn corners 5 more feet out to the endboards and they would have avoided that bad spot.
