Indianapolis 500 is Top of Bucket List

In a four-week vote organized by USA Today, readers were asked which sporting event could they attend that would top their bucket list. The results are not surprising. The Indianapolis 500 was ranked at the number one spot. The famous speed race which always takes place on Memorial Day weekend is a fan favorite and a true welcome to summer. With only 300,000 participants each year, tickets are hard to come by and apparently very welcome for any sports fan in your life.
The always patriotic Olympics came second on the list. The Masters holds the reputation as being the hardest ticket in the world to come by and it only made third on the list. Fourth on the list was the most watched television broadcast in the nation; The Super Bowl. The Kentucky Derby landed number five on the list. Even current events couldn’t sway this group of voters as the current FIFA World Cup was ranked at number six.  College Football is always popular and tickets to attend the BCS Championship were ranked number seven on readers bucket list. America’s pastime may have been replaced by the need for speed as tickets to the World Series ranked number eight. Number nine would make our Canadian neighbors proud with tickets to witness the Stanley Cup Finals and lastly on our list is the madness that is March Madness with tickets to witness the Final Four game coming in at number ten.
