Due to the longevity of the Indianapolis 500, numerous traditions surrounding the race have developed over the years.Traditions include procedures for the running of the race, scheduling, and pre-race and post-race festivities.In early decades, Sundays were occasionally used for practice and/or qualifying, but were used sparingly in pre-World War II years.In some early years, practice may have been permitted on Sundays, but the gates might not be open to the public.In 1974, due to the energy crisis, the schedule was reduced, and the track opened instead three weeks before race day.

Since 1978 at the Speedway, that weekend is often filled with activities honoring the U. military, including an oath of enlistment ceremony.

For many fans, these traditions are an important aspect of the race, and they have often reacted quite negatively when the traditions are changed or broken.

As part of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the pre-race ceremonies of the Indianapolis 500 feature several patriotic songs.
