Security changes in works for Brickyard 400

INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials say they’re working on ways to make sure fans for this weekend’s Brickyard 400 don’t face the same long security lines that frustrated many people at the Indianapolis 500 in May.

Heavier security imposed after the Boston Marathon bombings angered thousands of Indy 500 fans who stood in line for up to two hours. Some fans reached the gates only to be told that they had to lug their coolers back to their cars parked blocks away because of new size restrictions.

Track officials told WTHR-TV ( that details will be released Monday about security changes for this Sunday’s NASCAR race.

Crowds for the Brickyard 400 should be smaller and fans will have more time to get inside with a later race starting time.
