INDIANAPOLIS

Capital and largest city in the state, centrally located Indianapolis pulses
with the activity forged by its high-tech industries, governmental
and educational sectors and sports and cultural institutions.
Progress has been the catalyst behind its growth from a
wilderness camp in 1820 to a midwestern giant today.

MY INDIANAPOLIS VIDEO



SPORTS
Indianapolis has become the nations leading venue for amateur athletics in recent years. But Indianapolis is also the proud home to several professional sports teams...



The
Indiana Pacers are in the central division of the Eastern Conference of the NBA. The Pacers play in Banker's Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis.



Professional football came to Indianapolis March 28, 1984, when Colts owner Robert Irsay moved the historic NFL franchise from Baltimore to Indianapolis—the friendly heart of the Midwest. The Indianapolis Colts won the Super Bowl in 2007 and moved into their new home at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2008.

The Indianapolis Indians are the Triple-A affiliate for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Victory Field, now only a few years old, is the finest minor league ballpark in the country.

The Cincinnati Reds dumped Indianapolis as their farm club in 1999.


The Indiana Ice are the minor league hockey team for the Chicago Blackhawks.



Buddy Rice has a deeper appreciation of how timing impacts one’s life. His participation – and victory -- in the rain-shortened Indianapolis 500 on May 30, 2004 was built on timing, and the win will change his life. Rice finished the race where he started – in front of the field. In between, there was a bit of everything at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Rain, drama, more rain. Finally, with light rain and more threatening skies, Rice took the checkered flag on Lap 180 – 20 short of a complete race.


Jeff Gordon added to his legacy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, becoming the first three-time winner of the Brickyard 400 by beating Sterling Marlin to the finish by .943 of a second on August 5, 2001.


There were plenty of memorable moments for the Fever in 2003, including a playoff charge and the continuing emergence of Tamika Catchings as one of the top players in the WNBA.
