Indianapolis Motor speedway clean up after Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS — The winner's been crowned and the fans are gone but there are still signs of the Indy 500 leftover at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Cleanup crews hit the speedway this morning to tackle the trash problem.

Those cleanup crews are not going home empty-handed. They are getting paid for their services based on how much ground they cover.

"Some people just don't care, but I guess when you pay this much money to have fun and have a good time, you leave it to somebody else," said a cleaner.

Some of those groups have been on a two-year waiting list for the chance to move food, toilets and even forgotten clothing from the speedway.
