(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indianapolis 500 is a sellout for the first time in more than 20 years.

IMS says the last reserved seats for the 500 sold late Friday morning, 23 days ahead of Race Day.

President Doug Boles says there's been a surge of attention for the 100th running of the 500, but he says it also reflects a string of close finishes in recent years. Visitors will see a refurbished racetrack, with a new grandstand, restrooms and concession stands.

Visit Indy says 33,000 Indianapolis hotel rooms were booked a solid six weeks ago, two months ahead of last year's pace.
