The mystery is solved.: Until now, no one except for a handful of people have really known how many seats there are at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The estimates have gone as high as 500,000, but we now know they were way off. Here is how it was done, plus a section by section breakdown.

That's still an awesome number of people to convene in one place. I couldn't tell if any of those seats are bleachers. If so, the number's going to drop from 267,000 as American race fans, never one of the country's more diet-prone groups, get wider.

Does internal's 13 months between postings make a record here?
