An agreement has been reached to make the Indianapolis Motor Speedway accessible to people with disabilities.
The U.S. Attorney's office announced a settlement with IMS Thursday.
The agreement set a timeline for bringing the venue into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and includes a list of more than 360 changes that need to be made.
The Speedway will begin providing accessibility in all areas of the grandstands to people in wheelchairs and their companions and will install ramps and elevators to support ease of access and modify concession stands, restrooms and even the viewing areas on the mounds on the inside of the Speedway.
All of this came about from a single complaint lodged by race fan in 1999 when he was denied access to Gasoline Alley because he was in a wheelchair.
The compliance construction will likely cost millions to complete.
