The Indianapolis 500, often called the Indy 500, Indy or the 500, is an American motor race held in Speedway, Indiana at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Considered to be one of the most prestigious motor races and is part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport. It was first raced in 1911, and was part of the Formula One World Championship from 19501960. It was also part of the Grand Prix circuit from 19111916 and from 19191930, being considered a Grand Épreuve from 19231930. The World Championship races were not run to Formula One regulations.

Regular Formula One drivers tended not to drive in the Indy 500 in the 1950s when it was a round of the World Championship, but often attended in the 60s. These days, the Indy 500 is completely separate to the World Championship.

The race takes place at the end of May and the build-up, practice and qualifying is often referred to as "The Month of May". The race was traditionally run on Memorial Day, or May 30, but is now raced on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, meaning it typically takes place from May 24 to May 31. The race often takes place on the same day as the Monaco Grand Prix, meaning that driving in both races in the same year is very rarely achieved.
