The Last Row Party is held in partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the Thursday evening before the race at the Hulman Terrace Club, is situated close to the iconic Turn 4 with sweeping viewes of the Pagoda and start/finish lines of the Indianapolis 500. In addition to   saluting drivers with live Q&A sessions, we also recognize our scholarship recipients.

One of the Month of May’s most anticipated, fan-favorite events, attendees can eat, drink and laugh as drivers are interviewed and engage with fans. (The event takes place at 4790 West 16th Street. Visitors enter off Georgetown Road and directions are printed on your ticket). Last Row Party T-shirts, designed to commemorate the year’s back-row drivers, are also available for pre-order and purchase at the event.

Recent years’ Last Row Party participating drivers have included such IndyCar stars and even Indy 500 winners such as Will Power, Simona de Silvestro, Alexander Rossi, James Hinchcliffe, Ryan Briscoe, Tony Kanaan, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Ana Beatriz, Sebastian Saavedra and Takuma Sato. All were Last Row Party honorees and instant crowd favorites.

Ticket prices are $75 and included are entertainment and food plus cash bars. Attire is casual, and attendees are encouraged to sport checkered or black-and-white attire.
