Volunteers Tackle Indy 500 Party Aftermath

After a three-day party at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, debris was strewn from the depths of the snake pit to the highest seat in the grandstand overlooking the track.

Community groups worked tirelessly Monday morning to clean up everything from beer cans, food, clothing, inflatables, carpet and even furniture left behind by race revelers who attended the Indy 500 on Sunday. 

Likely, the most disturbing sight was what used to be a row of portable toilets. But apparently it’s not as bad as it sounds.
 “It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was acutely pretty fun. We
have a lot of good people on our team. I just love doing community service,” said volunteer Lorissa Turner.

IMS donates money to each organization that volunteers to get their hands dirty.
The entire track will be all spiffed up and back to normal by later this evening.
