One of the oldest auto racing venues in the United States, the historic Lincoln Tech Indianapolis Speedrome, is now entering a new era under the ownership of Kevin Garrigus. “I am very proud to own the Speedrome“, stated Mr. Garrigus. “And I am extremely excited about its future. There are 75-years of great history behind us and many more years of motorsports entertainment ahead of us”. The one-fifth mile paved short track located on Indy’s east side is famous for its thrilling Figure 8 racing and intense oval action. Its signature event is the annual World Championship 3-Hour Figure 8 Endurance Race held each September.
The Garrigus family has been a part of the Speedrome fabric for 4 generations. This is a traditional tale for many beginning as a Speedrome child fan through adulthood as a parent and even a grandparent of a fan or driver. That is a big part of why Kevin Garrigus wanted to purchase the Speedrome. In recent years, he has been a track sponsor, multiple team sponsor, car owner, and parent to winning racer Jacob Garrigus. Outside of the Speedrome, he has built several successful businesses with the most recent being Advance Auto Sales.
