People of the Indy 500's Snake Pit

The massive infield of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway includes an area called the "Snake Pit," best described as a party zone where the grass is littered with thousands of smashed beer cans, while people of all ages -- though the demo skews college-aged & white -- generally go nuts. Look out for lots of instances of the American-flag-as-fashion: bikini tops, bikini bottoms, bandannas, T-shirts, shorts, hats and denim vests. The party gets going at 7 a.m. and runs through the end of the race in the late afternoon. Photographer Nate "Igor" Smith was there for the 2013 edition, where Diplo and Afrojack DJ'd the debauchery in corn country.
