INDIANAPOLIS - The word on the streets of Indianapolis is that the annual Indianapolis 500 Race could be moving out of Indiana.
Sports Balls Illustrated Daily is reporting that an inside unnamed source who did not want her name revealed stated that the Indianapolis 500 Racing Organization has received a fantastic offer to move the national race to Saginaw, Michigan in 2014.
Rufus Reno with SBID said that he spoke with the unnamed source who revealed that the city of Saginaw has made the prestigious racing organization an offer that is too fabulous to refuse.
It is reported that Sierra Chandella Butterhouse, who is a member of the Saginaw City Council, has informed the racing group that if they agree to leave Indianapolis and relocate to Saginaw, the city will build them a state of the art race track and facility that will make the current one in Indianapolis seem like a kiddie race track.
Miss Butterhouse also stated that the city will wave all racing organization city taxes for 12 years and will have signs put up all over the city that read "Welcome To Saginaw - Home of The Saginaw 500."
Butterhouse, who was crowned Detroit's Miss Carburetor of 2002, stated that the deal was pitched due to the fact that Michigan has been hit real hard with dozens of auto plant closures.
SIDENOTE: The Saginaw City Council also made it known that if the Indianapolis 500 relocates to their town the state of Michigan will give each Indianapolis 500 executive two seasons tickets to their choice of either the Detroit Tigers, the Detroit Lions, the Detroit Pistons, or the Detroit Red Wings.
