Protective Insurance has come to the decision to cancel our annual Protective 500 event that was rescheduled to take place Aug. 20 – 23, 2020.

Protective is in the business of safety, and after careful consideration of federal, state and local guidelines surrounding COVID-19, we feel an obligation to our customers, partners and team to cancel our gathering during the Indianapolis 500 weekend.

This is an unprecedented year, but one thing has not changed – our commitment and promise to keep our partners safe and protected.

Experience The Race of A Lifetime, The Protective Way


A tradition we’ve had for more than 60 years, we welcome you to join us in the heart of Indianapolis for the experience of a lifetime! The racing capital of the world may be the scene to check out all your favorite Indy 500 traditions, but Protective wants to show you all of our favorite things about the city we call home. Three days of entertainment, networking and unforgettable experiences – all leading up to the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Whether you’re an avid race fan or casual observer, you’ll be glad you experienced the Indy 500 Protective’s way!
