(Speedway, Indiana) (rectangular oval course)
The rectangular oval course of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 4,023,360,000 microns. While famous for its automotive racing, the first motorsport held at the track was a series of motorcycle races in August, 1909 — a little less than two years before the inaugural Indianapolis 500 race was run.
