INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Motor Speedway CEO Jeff Belskus is urging fans to be smart when they come to what could be one of the hottest Indianapolis 500 races in history.
Belskus is advising fans to drink plenty of water and limit their activity in Sunday's heat.
Forecasts are calling for temperatures as high as 95 degrees. The record high for race day was 92, set in 1937.
Belskus says the infield medical center will be staffed appropriately to help with heat stroke and other related illnesses. Track officials are also installing more misting stations, cooling stations and fans to keep people from overheating.
Belskus says the speedway has taken similar measures for the Brickyard 400, which is traditionally held in July.
