TACOMA, Wash.—June 1, 2022—As the official staffing partner of the 2022 NTT INDYCAR® SERIES, PeopleReady exemplified its mission of connecting people and work by staffing over 300 positions essential to running the Indy 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this past weekend. Positions staffed included ticket takers, event support staff, concession workers, and bartender and barback positions.
