Still looking for gift ideas for that hard-to-shop for Uncle? Can't quite seem to find the right gift for your nephew? What about a trip around the greatest race track in the world?

If you are in the Indianapolis area tomorrow, Wednesday the 23rd of December, you can give someone a truly unique gift. The experience is obviously the best part, but almost as good as that, is the price. That's right, it's free!

After unveiling the new Camaro SS Pace Car for the 2010 Indianapolis 500 last week, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will now offer a unique gift to those who want it, as part of their "12 Free Days of Indy Christmas."

The Hall of Fame Museum, located inside the historic track, will be letting fans in for free tomorrow, as well as a narrated track tour. The Museum features 75 vehicles on display, including the winning car of the very first Indianapolis 500 in 1911, "The Wasp."

This one day event will feature a guided track tour, even though the weather calls for some precipitation, it shouldn't have any negative effect on the activities that are planned.

The gates will open at 9am local time, and all of the gift shops will be open for those who wish to purchase collectibles and gifts. If you would like more information about this event, you can log on to www.indianapolismotorspeedway.com

For those that have never had a chance to get to the speedway, it is an experience that you will remember forever. Even without the 33 cars flying around the track and the festivities before the race, as well as the half-million fans having a good time, it will be a truly unforgettable experience.

Tickets are on sale now for the 2010 Indianapolis 500. The tickets start at just $20. If you have never been to this race, you need to log onto the website and purchase your tickets today. You can also purchase your practice day and qualification tickets here as well.

If you are in the area tomorrow, take someone who has never been to the track, and make this a truly great Christmas for someone.
