Illustration for article titled Watch A Basketball Arena Transform Into A Dirt Track

Over the weekend, the Bankers Life Fieldhouse was turned from a basketball arena into an indoor Dirt Midget and Outlaw Kart track for the Bad Boy Indy Invitational. How did it happen? With lots and lots of dirt, of course.


The Bad Boy Indy Invitational was the first indoor race of its kind in Indianapolis, and it took 50 loads of “premium dirt” and 800 feet of steel barrier and fencing to pull off, according to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
