INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Some pretty impressive survey results were released on Thursday: people would rather go to the Indianapolis 500 than the Olympic Games.

The Indianapolis 500 has been voted the World’s Best Bucket List Sports Event. A recent fan vote by 10Best — a division of USA Today Travel — showed the Indy 500 got the most votes, topping events like the Olympic Games, The Masters and the Super Bowl.

Below is the top 10 list:

  1. Indianapolis 500
  2. Olympic Games
  3. The Masters
  4. Super Bowl
  5. Kentucky Derby
  6. World Cup Finals
  7. College Football Championship
  8. World Series
  9. Stanley Cup
  10. March Madness
