INDIANAPOLIS -- With the actual Indianapolis 500 in the rearview mirror, attention turns to the annual cleanup effort.
The hundreds of thousands of fans who watched the race from the stands, or spent time in the infield left trash behind across the entire speedway. From the infield to the stands, thousands of beverage cans, bottles and food wrappers were scattered throughout the brickyard.
But the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has the help of several volunteer groups who are spent their day cleaning up all the trash left behind. IMS donates money to each organization that volunteers to get their hands dirty, so it's a win-win.
