Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana

Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana


Lucas Oil Raceway, located on the outer edge of Brownsburg, has been hosting world class racing events since 1961. That’s decades of family fun (and great date nights, too).

If you’re preparing to attend one of the many Brownsburg, Indiana events that the raceway hosts every year, you’ll want to come prepared. I’ve got the tips to help you make the most of your day.

After all, there’s nothing worse than forgetting something you really could have used but didn’t even think about.

What to Bring to Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg

Sunscreen – You’re going to be outside, exposed to the sun all day long. Sunscreen is a necessity, as are sunglasses (and perhaps a hat). You might think you won’t need them, but trust me, I’ve seen the lobster look. It’s not pretty–and it is guaranteed to be painful. Slather it on and don’t forget to reapply often.

Water – It gets hot out there. Like, scorching hot. It’s okay to bring in coolers, just know that you might be searched at the gate. Remember to sip water every now and again so you don’t get too dehydrated. Passing out in the bleachers will never end well.

Camera – It’s fun to capture your experiences at Lucas Oil Raceway! Always bring a charged camera that’s ready to go. Make sure to clear off space on your camera first so you have room for it all.

Earplugs – Depending on which event you’re attending, the cars can be very loud. Bring earplugs or earmuffs, or buy them when you get there. This is especially true for children. Honestly, if you are sitting outside in it all day, your ears will be ringing by the end if you don’t. Just wear them.

Proper Attire – If you’re visiting the track in the middle of summer, dress accordingly for the heat. If you’re visiting in the spring or fall, bring layers. The sun may relentlessly beat down on you during the day, but it can get chilly at nighttime. It’s great to be able to slip a jacket on when the sun goes down.

Vroom! Vroom! Seasonal Fun

Lucas Oil Raceway opens for business at the beginning of April, and closes at the end of October. Check out the schedule of events to see what sparks your interest at this fun Hendricks County attraction.

If you’re not sure which event to attend first, I recommend checking out the Open Bracket Championship in June, the U.S. Nationals in September, or the Sportsman Fall Classic in October. It’s all good!
