    The Indianapolis 500 scheduled for May 24 has been postponed until August because of the coronavirus pandemic and won't run on Memorial Day weekend for the first time since 1946.

    The race will instead be held Aug. 23.

    The Indianapolis 500 began in 1911 but did not run in 1917, 1918 and from 1941 to 1945 because of World Wars I and II. Tony Hulman bought the neglected speedway after the second war. The Indy 500 returned Memorial Day weekend of 1946 and has been scheduled for that weekend every year since.
