HTNI #22

Another sports question today.
The Indianapolis Motorspeed Way, celebrates the years 2009-2011 as the Centennial years although it is only the 93rd,94th and 95th running of the Indy 500 ( was interrupted due to the World Wars). Why are they celebrating the Centennial years from 2009-2011?

Answer to previous question

Konga, Sourabh , Rohit and Divya got it right -- Bill Bowerman it is. Co-founder of Nike and the US athletics coach during the Munich Olympics.

hmmm losing out in the tie breaker (on this question) of the national semis of the motorsports quiz3 years back doesnt make me forget the fact that the track was opened in 1909. so that would make 2009 the centennial year

In 2009, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway began a three-year long "Centennial Era" to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of the track (1909), and the 100th anniversary of the first Indy 500 (1911)
