The Indianapolis Motor Speedway opened in 1909.  In 1911 the first Indy 500 race took place. This weekend the Brickyard will be filled with race fans as well as well known NASCAR drivers. 

"The term "Brickyard" is in reference to the nickname historically used for the Indianapolis Motor Speedwaybrick in 1909, and a one-yard strip of brick remains exposed the start/finish line" since 1910.  "Since the inaugural race, the Brickyard 400 has become NASCAR's most–attended event, drawing an estimated crowd of more than 250,000 fans annually. It also has become NASCAR's second highest paying race in dollars (behind the Daytona 500)."  - source wikipedia
