|Notes||Indiana is home to the first long distance auto race – the Indianapolis 500 held every Memorial Day weekend starting back in May 1911 with the exception of 1917-1918 and 1942-1945 due to World War I and II. As much as outsiders might consider racing the most popular sport in Indiana, Hoosiers will tell you high school basketball is like religion.
