INDIANAPOLIS (March 23, 2012) – Legendary Indianapolis 500 champion Danny Sullivan will highlight the 2012 500 Festival Breakfast at the Brickyard, presented by ProLiance Energy on Saturday, May 19 at 8:30 a.m. at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s® Plaza Pavilion. Sullivan made worldwide headlines for his incredible “spin to win” victory in 1985, where he spun around 360 degrees going 200 mph down the south short chute and went on to win one of the most memorable Indianapolis 500’s in history. Sullivan’s IndyCar career spanned 12 years including 12 Indianapolis 500 starts and one PPG IndyCar World Series championship (1988).
 
Guests will enjoy a hearty Hoosier breakfast, take a lap around the famed oval in their vehicle (weather permitting), tour the garages and experience Pole Day Qualifying for the 2012 Indianapolis 500® (immediately following the event). Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard will salute Hoosier mayors from across the state in attendance in celebration of the month of May in Indiana. In addition, the 2012 500 Festival Queen will be crowned.
 
This event is open to the public. Individual tickets are available for $60 and corporate and community tables are available for $750. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call the 500 Festival at (317) 614-6400.
 
The 500 Festival Breakfast at the Brickyard, presented by ProLiance Energy is sponsored by Ice Miller, AAA Hoosier Motor Club, Crowe Horwath, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, WIBC and WTHR Channel 13.
 
The mission of the 500 Festival is to advocate and celebrate the spirit, heritage and legacy of the Indianapolis 500®. Through social, cultural and educational events and programs, the 500 Festival enhances the quality of life for all citizens of our communities.
      
The 500 Festival, a not-for-profit volunteer organization, was created in 1957 to organize civic events celebrating the greatest race in the world. Over the past 55 years, the 500 Festival has grown to become one of the largest festivals in the nation.

Last year, more than 500,000 Hoosiers and visitors participated in nearly 50 events and programs throughout the month of May. Whether they were athletes running the Mini-Marathon, fourth grade students participating in the Education Program, families enjoying the state’s largest festival for kids or spectators being dazzled by one of the nation’s premier parades, they were there, celebrating the legacy.
