As the public starts to return to normal routines, stadiums are being prepped to allow fans back in the stands once again.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is also gearing up to host the largest sporting event in the world since the pandemic began.

IMS President Doug Boles joining 44News This Morning to discuss what loyal race fans will experience when arriving at the massive property for various events in the month of May.

In early April track officials announced 135,000 fans would be able to attend this year's race on Sunday, May 30.

While some festivities have been canceled this year, several mainstays at the track will return this year, including fans.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
