These Colorized Photos Show a Century’s Evolution of Indy 500 Racing

The first Indy 500 was held on May 30, 1911

The Indianapolis 500, which will be held on May 29 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, looks quite a bit different today than it did when the first race was held on May 30, 1911. That year, the formerly gravel-and-tar race track was newly paved, Memorial Day was still known as Decoration Day and a total of 60,000 fans—about a fifth of today’s attendance, not including the 6 million or so who will watch on TV—showed up to take in the action. But perhaps the biggest difference between then and now is the evolution of the race cars themselves.
