1. Brickyard 400

July 24, 3 p.m. Headlines aplenty this go-around. Hoosier native Tony Stewart races in his final Brickyard. Jeff Gordon returns from retirement looking to add another notch on his already historical IMS career. Temperature looking to be more than 100 degrees. Sounds like a typical July at the speedway.

5. IMA Summer Nights: Crazy for Swayze Double Feature

July 22, 7 p.m. The IMA is setting the bar high by starting with the cult classic Road House, an action-packed drama in which Patrick Swayze stars as a bouncer hired to clean up The Double Deuce — the loudest, most dangerous bar south of the Mason-Dixon Line. The second feature, Dirty Dancing, is softer, of course. Swayze stars as a dance instructor who sweeps a young woman (Jennifer Grey) off her feet and falls in love at a sleepy resort in the Catskills. Before the film, you can ride a mechanical bull or join the Firefly Cove Talent Show. The pre-screening fun includes music from DJ Scott Stulen as well as the chance to buy limited edition posters from Ronlewhorn Industries.
