FFA at the Indy 500

This weekend marks when Indiana will come alive, a phenomenon in the racing world will take place, and Indiana FFA State Officers and members will be present – it’s the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana!

The FFA members will be working with Farm Journal to promote agriculture and FFA on Friday, Saturday, and then race day on Sunday. Members from Danville FFA, North Miami FFA, Carroll @ Flora FFA, and Fountain Central FFA have signed up and will be representing their Chapters as well as FFA this weekend.  Upon members volunteering a total of ten hours, they will be receiving a free ticket to the race on Sunday.

Since this is the first time this opportunity has been available to us, we are looking forward to getting feedback from those who participate this year as well as Farm Journal to see how we can grow the partnership and promote racing and agriculture together! Happy Indy 500 weekend, everyone!
