Running of the Bulls overshadowed, 36 dead in annual Running of the Indy Cars tradition

Chaos and tragedy reigned supreme in the annual Running of the Indy Cars event today, as 36 people died and over 200 were injured in anticipation of Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 race.

The event, modeled after the famed Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, is held in downtown Indianapolis, where daring fans can take to the streets in an attempt to outrun a dozen Indy cars that have been let loose by race officials. While the event allows fans to get up close and personal with some of their favorite drivers, it has been responsible for hundreds of deaths since 1996, its inaugural year.
