Dallara’s U.S. Director Stefano de Ponti says they hope to begin operations of some departments in November.
He says they hope to finalize the new IndyCar chassis and begin initial tests of the car in August. The building will also house the Indy Racing Experience.
Speedway Redevelopment Commission Executive Director Scott Harris says the Dallara building will be the first of several structures that will reshape Main Street. He says they hope to have three or four more announcements of facilities along Main Street within the next several months.
As the Dallara and Main Street projects are ongoing, some local businesses are seeing fewer customers.
Shannon Carmack, Manager of Charlie Brown’s Pancake and Steak House says people don’t want to take detours to get to Main Street, but they hope business picks back up once the projects are complete.
