If you have never been to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum, shame on you. There is nothing else that can provide such an iconic historical perspective of the greatest event in all of motorsports.

There are many things to see in your visit to the museum, so plan on spending a lot of time inside. There will, however, be a significant change coming soon.

From March 20 to May 31, the Hall of Fame Museum will have an even more exciting new look. During that time, only winning Indy 500 cars will be in the museum's first floor. This has never been done before. In honor of the centennial celebration of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Speedway is offering the public an extraordinary viewing opportunity.

A media-only event will be conducted on Saturday, followed by a free event for members of the Indianapolis community at the Hall of Fame Museum on Sunday, March 20. As of right now, it is planned to display 66 Indy 500-winning cars on the museum floor, which will represent 70 wins. Roger Penske will be sending all his winning cars to the Museum.


On Sunday, March 20, the general public is invited to come out between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Drivers will be in attendance from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Some of the drivers scheduled to attend the event include Rick Mears, Bobby Unser, Arie Luyendyk, Al Unser Jr., Dario Franchitti and Gil de Ferran.


If you have never met these legendary drivers, this is your opportunity to do so in one of the most unique atmospheres in all of sports. If you have met some of these drivers before, I would imagine you are already planning to attend, as you should.


This is your chance to be a part of something historical at the most famous race track in the world, with some of the greatest drivers ever to sit in a race car.
