I know this is probably way before your time, but there are two songs that were popular back in the 1960s (I was born in the early 1960s) that mention Indianapolis: "Fun Fun Fun" by the Beach Boys, from 1964 that mentions the Indy 500, and "Little Green Apples" by O.C. Smith (1968) that mentions that it doesn't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime (which is not true). Yes, Indianapolis has been mentioned in songs, but I agree there should be more songs about Indianapolis!(Songs about Indiana: "Back Home Again in Indiana" the song sung by Jim Nabors at the Indianapolis 500 and "Indiana Wants Me" by R. Dean Taylor from 1970.)
Indiana Wants Me by R Dean Taylor is one of my favorites classic rock songs, yet it doesn't get radio play even on classic radio. Shame. It's a great song and deserves classic status.
