SPEEDWAY, Ind. – The energy has returned to Speedway, and with it the fans. The buzz along Main Street turned into skyrocketing profits for local artists and nearby businesses.

“We had a lot of businesses on Main Street that were just struggling to survive,” says Speedway City Council President Vincent Noblet, “We urge the public, come support our businesses at Speedway. These guys put it on the line for us.

The Speedway Arts Council is behind a pop-up store on Main Street. They say it was their most successful event ever. Foot traffic gives local artists a chance to sell their Indy 500 creations. With Indy 500 qualifying this weekend, the council hopes to further increase sales and support these local businesses.

“I think it would be great to have all those walls and all those racks bare by the end of the show,” adds Speedway Arts Council member Bruce Levy.
