I went to the Indy 500 once.  You can recreate the experience at home.  Just run a chainsaw next to your ear for five hours while getting drunk in the hot sun.

Apart from the Indy 500, not a big fan base.  When they ran Indy cars at Chicagoland Speedway, you had to buy a ticket package for everything they ran, so I would go with friends who didn't follow racing.  One year, the championship was going to be decided at Chicagoland, and it looked like the Trump inauguration in the stands, nobody there.

Meanwhile, He Who Shall Not Be Named absolutely failing made me glad there was a racing series that wouldn't let him cheat.

The 500 is honestly one of those things that's probably more fun at home/on tv.  You don't get the vibe of the crowd like you do in-person, but the weather's better, beer's better/cheaper/more abundant, you get a better idea of what's actually happening, and you can divide your attention during the slower part by watching while surfing the web or chatting with a buddy and pay more attention to the actual good bits.  It's kind of like baseball.
