The fifth annual Edmonton Indy--sponsored by Rexall--is a round of the IndyCar Series held at a temporary circuit at Edmonton's City Centre Airport (near NAIT and Kingsway Garden Mall). The former Rexall Grand Prix (est. 2005) will welcome stock car superstars like Helio Castroneves, Danica Patrick and Canadian Alex Tagliani, while Canuck rocker Sam Roberts will perform during opening day. All ages are welcome to see world-class stock cars racing the 95 laps of the 3.15 km (1.96 miles) track at nearly 400 km/hr., but be sure to check out the Spectator Info tab at the official website to know what you can and can't bring to the big show.
