INDIANAPOLIS - The solar power facility at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway officially opened for business with a Tuesday morning ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The facility sits on 41 acres of land next to the backstretch of the track and includes more than 39,000 solar panels capable of generating more than 9 megawatts of power.
