Events on Sunday included live music and performances, a Kids Zone, an armed forces ceremony, the zip line and of course the Indianapolis 500 qualifications.

Fans staked out their spots around the track. Bump day was a day to see who made the race and who would be sent home.

Although the race has long been known for it's rowdy fans, there is now an IMS Kids Zone where families can take a break from the action on the track.

"It's nice that they're going to a family-friendly environment so that you can bring the kids out and have a good family fun day and everything," said fan Mike Flanagan.

Admissions into the IMS costs $15 and children 12 and under are free.
