Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum Notes

If you are planning to come out to the Speedway for qualifications Saturday or Sunday, we’re hoping you’ll drop by and visit us at the Museum. This weekend only, we are featuring the Pace Car Reunion. Not only do we have cars from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and up to the present, you will also see a 1914 Packard Special Roadster, a 1929 Studebaker President and a 1938 Hudson 112. In all, we have more than 230 Pace Cars on display, all in the parking lot in front of the Museum.

Of course, you’ll also want to come inside the Museum. If you haven’t visited for a while, you’ll be amazed at some changes that have been made. In particular, you’ll want to see our current special exhibit, the Team Penske 50th Anniversary Exhibition Presented by Pennzoil. Already acclaimed as one of the best exhibits the Museum has ever had, it will be here until November.

We also have a visiting collection of Tony Stewart race cars, including both cars he used on May 30,1999 when he did “The Double” and raced in the Indy 500 and the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte.

Finally, and perhaps the biggest change: we have opened 3000 square feet of additional exhibit space! In there you’ll find some cars you may not have seen for a while. The new space also has a panoramic view if the IMS infield.
